NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--JetBlue (Nasdaq: JBLU) today announced it has expanded its presence in the transatlantic market to continental Europe with new, nonstop service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) taking off today. Paris is the largest market JetBlue did not already serve from New York and is among the most requested destinations from the airline’s customer base.
With daily flights connecting New York to Paris, the successful routes between the U.S. and London, and service to Amsterdam coming later this summer, JetBlue plays a unique role in disrupting high-fare legacy carriers that have dominated transatlantic routes for decades. Additionally, JetBlue plans to launch service between Boston and Paris in 2024.
“JetBlue’s arrival into Paris is poised to disrupt the market once again with our award-winning service and low fares, bringing a fresh and innovative choice in transatlantic flying to a new European audience,” said Robin Hayes, chief executive officer, JetBlue. “We look forward to continuing to prove that customers don’t have to compromise great service for a low fare. We are excited to bring our highly acclaimed Mint and Core onboard service to both business and leisure customers traveling to and from Paris.”

L'Expérience JetBlue |The JetBlue Experience
The airline’s Mint premium experience – which first raised the bar on transcontinental travel in the U.S. and was reimagined for transatlantic flying – offers customers a fresh choice when flying between the U.S. and Europe. JetBlue Mint features 24 fully lie-flat private suites with a sliding door – including two Mint Studio® seats – and a custom-designed seat cushion developed by innovative mattress company Tuft & Needle. Its proprietary T&N Adaptive® foam with a breathable cover creates a cool and comfortable sleep experience unlike anything in the sky. Mint also boasts countless intuitive design touches that help every customer feel at home in the air. JetBlue has also introduced its latest innovation – the stunning Mint Studio – offering even more space in a premium experience.
JetBlue’s industry-leading core experience was also reinvented for transatlantic flying and offers a new level of service to customers who generally fly “coach” but still want a great experience at an attractive fare. With just 114 core seats – including 24 Even More® Space Seats – customers enjoy a boutique-style experience no matter where they sit. All of the comforts JetBlue customers have come to expect are enhanced by the airline’s partnership with New York-based restaurant group Dig, to bring its signature build-your-own dining concept to tray tables at 35,000 feet – JetBlue’s complimentary meal in core. Core customers also enjoy a free selection of soft drinks, coffee, tea, beer, wine and liquor. The A321LR features new extra-large overhead bins, and all customers, regardless of fare type, may bring one carry-on, space permitting, and one personal item.
Customers in both core and Mint stay connected throughout the flight with unlimited, free high-speed wi-fi on every plane. Additionally, customers have access to a curated selection of live TV channels – focused on news and sports – and an extensive library of seatback entertainment, allowing customers to have a multiple screen experience onboard – just like they do at home.
