JetBlue has recently announced the introduction of new flights between the airline’s Boston focus city and London starting this summer.
The airline’s new nonstop service between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and London Gatwick Airport (LGW) will take off from the U.S. on July 19, 2022, followed by a nonstop service between Boston and London Heathrow Airport (LHR) on August 22, 2022. With service to Heathrow and Gatwick, JetBlue becomes the only airline to fly between New England and London’s two largest and busiest airports.
‘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,’ said Robin Hayes, chief executive officer, JetBlue. ‘Our London service has been an incredible success so far and we’ve been able to go in with our unbeatable JetBlue service and experience and bring down fares on a traditionally overpriced route – the JetBlue Effect in action. We’re ready to do the same at Logan as we advance our growth strategies in both Boston and London.’
Flights on both Gatwick and Heathrow routes will operate daily on JetBlue’s new Airbus A321 Long Range (LR) aircraft with 24 redesigned Mint suites, and 114 standard seating. Introductory roundtrip fares for U.S.-originating travellers flying to Gatwick start at $499 roundtrip or $1,949 for JetBlue’s premium Mint experience. Roundtrip fares to Heathrow start at $549 for standard and $1,999 for Mint. Seats on both new London routes are on sale now and U.S. point-of-sale fares are available online at jetblue.com. U.K.-originating travellers can also avail special introductory fares starting at £349 for core and £1,449 for Mint from Gatwick. Roundtrip fares from Heathrow start at £399 for core and £1,499 for Mint.
For exclusive savings and perks, customers can also bundle their flight and hotel with JetBlue Vacations.
‘JetBlue has been a great partner to Logan for many years and we are excited that they are launching two London – Boston services this summer,’ said Massport’s Director of Aviation Ed Freni. ‘These new flights give our passengers even more choice when they cross the Atlantic.’
JetBlue has also announced that it is extending its flying schedule between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and London Heathrow Airport, with seats available for booking now.
