US carrier JetBlue is set to expand its transatlantic network with plans to launch a new service between New York and Paris in summer 2023, followed by an additional nonstop service between Boston and the French capital.
The nonstop service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) will be operated by an Airbus A321LR aircraft, with tickets to go on sale in the coming months.
The new route comes after the carrier launched its first transatlantic service from New York-JFK to both Heathrow and Gatwick in August 2021, followed by non-stop daily flights between Boston and London in August 2022.
The carrier also said nonstop services between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Paris-CDG are “on the horizon”.
“JetBlue is offering something completely unique to what you get from the big global legacy airlines on these routes – where a single high-fare joint venture operates nearly three-quarters of the flying,” said JetBlue CEO, Robin Hayes.
“The response to our London service is proof that combining great service with low fares works. We can’t wait to bring our reimagined Mint [premium] and core offerings to Continental Europe’s most visited city,” he added.
