JetBlue has expanded its presence to a third transatlantic destination with new, nonstop service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) taking off today. Service from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to Amsterdam will launch on September 20. Amsterdam follows the airline’s successful launch of London service in August 2021 and Paris this past June.
“JetBlue’s transatlantic service has proven to lower fares and benefit customers in markets that have suffered for decades from high fares by legacy carriers,” said Robin Hayes, chief executive officer, JetBlue. “We look forward to introducing our award-winning Mint and core service to business and leisure customers traveling to and from Amsterdam.”
“It is a pleasure to welcome JetBlue to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and their contribution to Schiphol’s network,” said Ruud Sondag, president and CEO of Royal Schiphol Group. “Most importantly, with JetBlue deploying their new Airbus A321neo LR aircraft, they contribute to noise reduction and sustainability efforts.”
