JetBlue to launch Boston-London services in summer
Low-cost US carrier JetBlue will start services from Boston to Heathrow and Gatwick this summer.
A non-stop service between Boston Logan International Airport and Gatwick begins on July 19, then Boston-Heathrow takes off from August 22.
The carrier said London is among the most requested destinations from the airline’s large Boston customer base.
Robin Hayes, chief executive at JetBlue, said: “Our strategy of flying to both Heathrow and Gatwick airports has been a success for us in New York, and we’ve secured slots to be able to do the same in Boston, becoming the only airline in New England offering flights to London’s two main airports.”
Flights will operate daily on JetBlue’s new Airbus A321 Long Range (LR) aircraft with 24 redesigned Mint suites and 114 core (economy) seats.
The airline said the A321LR offers the range of a wide-body aircraft with the economics of a single-aisle aircraft.
Return fares start at £349 for core and £1,449 for Mint from Gatwick, while round-trip fares from Heathrow start at £399 for core and £1,499 for Mint.
JetBlue launched transatlantic services in August 2021 with its Heathrow service, followed by Gatwick in September 2021.
Stephanie Wear, aviation development vice-president at Gatwick, commented: “JetBlue’s new service to Boston is a really exciting route to be adding to Gatwick’s expanding long-haul network, providing passengers with access to a 10th destination in North America this summer.”
