JetBlue to offer seasonal transatlantic Dublin and Edinburgh services

US low fares carrier JetBlue has started selling tickets for two new transatlantic destinations: Dublin and Edinburgh.

Daily seasonal services from New York’s JFK airport and Boston to the Irish capital will take off from the US from March 13, 2024, and continue through to September 30, 2024.

Then from May 22, 2024, a daily seasonal service from New York’s JFK will operate to Edinburgh, running until September 30, 2024.

These mark JetBlue’s fourth and fifth transatlantic markets. The carrier currently offers daily non-stop services to London, Paris and Amsterdam from New York, plus London and Amsterdam from Boston.

Robin Hayes, chief executive at JetBlue, said: “The success of our transatlantic service proves customers don’t have to choose between great service and low fares and can have them both with our award-winning Mint [premium] and core [economy] products.

“Our summer seasonal service to Dublin and Edinburgh will bring a new level of service and affordable fares to these markets that have been dominated by high-fare legacy carriers for decades.

“We look forward to introducing the JetBlue experience to business and leisure customers travelling this summer to and from Ireland and Scotland.”

The airline’s premium Mint cabin features fully lie-flat private suites with a sliding door.

Flights to Dublin and Edinburgh will operate daily on JetBlue’s Airbus A321neo with 16 Mint Suite seats and 144 core seats.

Introductory return fares for journeys starting in Ireland or Scotland are €399 and £399 for core and €1,499 and £1,499 for Mint.

Elsewhere, JetBlue will be launching its year-round service from Boston to Paris on April 3, 2024, and will add a second daily flight from New York’s JFK to CDG on June 20, 2024.
