JetBlue to launch first transatlantic flight route to London

JetBlue to launch first transatlantic flight route to London

The new routes, which will take off from Boston and NY, will be served by the Airbus A321LR single-aisle plane.

And, in order to do so, JetBlue is adding a whole new aircraft to its fleet.

JetBlue went full Brit for the news, first with a cheeky tweet that employed extra U's and an S instead of a Z in all the right places: "Blue has always been our favourite colour and we'll never apologise for that".

"London is the largest metro area JetBlue doesn't yet serve from both Boston and NY, and we could not be more thrilled to be changing that in the years ahead", JetBlue's president and CEO, Joanna Geraghty, said in a statement. Norwegian Air makes the Boston-Gatwick route.

Morrison's administration has become a minority government after it lost multiple seats due to resignations. The Labor leader addressed reporters later on Thursday from a family home in Melbourne.

Hayes without mentioning which London airport it will use said the carrier was waiting for accurate plane came along, a single-aisle plane with plenty of variety to sidestep the requirement for "widebody" or costlier two-aisle planes. The carrier has created an internal team to begin securing USA regulatory approval for extended flights over water. He said he can offer prices that were dramatically lower in business class and toss in legroom in economy and amenities such as TV to stimulate new demand. American Airlines Group and IAG's British Airways form one alliance, while Delta Air Lines and Air France-KLM are joined in another and a third includes United Continental Holdings Inc. and Deutsche Lufthansa AG.

"There's a difference between going in as a little water skimmer taking off some of the leisure traffic at the bottom", Engel said. The new flights to London are subject to receipt of the government operating authority, JetBlue said.

The competition is also tough at less trafficked hubs.

The new routes, announced last night, will be inaugurated in 2021. Delta is a major competitor to JetBlue in both of those northeastern USA cities. When JetBlue executives first mentioned the new route, they said they hoped to provide a cheaper way to experience first class service while flying between Europe and the East Coast.
