JetBlue confirmed its plans to fly to London from New York and Boston in 2021. The carrier said it hopes to offer multiple daily services from both cities using a sigle-asisle Airbus 34321LR aircraft with a “re-imagined version of Mint” its premium transcontinental product. This will include more life-flat seats than currently offered on the aircraft.
JetBlue said it can offer Mint for a fraction of what other carriers are charging for premium seats.
The airline says launching transatlantic flights is “the next natural step” in its nearly 20-year history. It began flying to international destinations 15 years ago and now operates services to the Caribbean and South America, reaching as far as Ecuador and Peru.
