JetBlue Grows in Europe with Summer Flights to Dublin and Edinburgh

JetBlue will expand its transatlantic schedule by offering nonstop flights to Dublin and Edinburgh in Spring 2024, the airline’s 5th and 6th overseas destinations

JetBlue has announced that it will expand its transatlantic schedule by offering flights to Dublin and Edinburgh in Spring 2024. 

Passengers can now book daily service flights from New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to Dublin Airport (DUB) starting on March 13 and ending on September 30, 2024.

JetBlue is finally achieving its long-held strategic ambitions to improve its service to Europe and compete with industry giants such as American AirlinesUnited, and Delta. The airline will operate three new routes, all serviced by Airbus A321neos, single-aisle airliners with 160 seats — 16 in business class and 144 in economy.

“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 and core products,” said Robin Hayes, chief executive officer of JetBlue.

“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 traveling this summer to and from Ireland and Scotland.”

Game-changing offerings

JetBlue is committed to offering a customer-focused, low-fare approach to international travel, as demonstrated by its latest transatlantic venture. 

The airline’s trademark Mint premium experience provides business class customers with private suites that are fully lie-flat, equipped with Tuft & Needle-designed cushions and a sliding door for maximum privacy. The in-flight cuisine is curated by culinary experts from New York’s Charlie Bird, Legacy Records, and Pasquale Jones and includes a variety of delectable small plates.

JetBlue provides its “core experience” for economy class customers flying across the Atlantic. This includes plenty of legroom, as well as a selection of complimentary snacks and beverages.

Seats for JetBlue’s routes to Dublin and Edinburgh have been available for purchase since October 25. If traveling from the U.S., you can take advantage of low fares starting at $399 for Core and $1,999 for Mint. Round-trip fares begin at $599 for Core and $2,499 for Mint.

Furthermore, JetBlue has announced additional flights from Boston to Paris, starting from April 23, to coincide with the Summer Olympics. Tickets for this route are now available, with fares starting at $599.
