JetBlue Extends London Heathrow Schedule Through October 2022

JetBlue has announced the extension of its transatlantic schedule for flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and London Heathrow Airport (LHR) through October 2022, with sale of seats beginning Tuesday, December 21. JetBlue was initially welcomed at Heathrow with temporary slots made available as entrenched, larger airlines reduced service during the pandemic. Since its transatlantic launch in August 2021, JetBlue has worked with local authorities to continue competing with other airlines on the route.

Before JetBlue launched the route, travelers were limited to expensive flights between JFK and Heathrow, especially in the premium travel segment. Since launching the route, JetBlue has reduced premium fares by up to 50 percent.

JetBlue’s extended transatlantic schedule is on sale through October 31, 2022.

As far as the flight schedule goes, Flight 007 leaves JFK at 9:30 p.m. and reaches Heathrow at 10:05 a.m. the next day. From, Heathrow, the flight departs at 2:00 p.m. and arrives at JFK at 5:08 p.m. 

In addition to JetBlue’s new service and low fares, the airline has been appreciated for more legroom in coach, live television and on-demand entertainment on every seatback, free and fast Fly-Fi broadband internet, and complimentary snacks and soft drinks. The airline’s Mint premium experience features 24 fully lie-flat private suites with a sliding door—including two Mint Studios—and a custom-designed seat cushion developed by innovative mattress company Tuft & Needle.

The core experience—usually called coach or economy at other airlines—was also reinvented for crossing the pond and offers a new level of service to customers who generally fly “coach” but still want a great experience at a lower 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 first complimentary meal in core. Core customers also enjoy a free selection of soft drinks, coffee, tea, beer, wine and liquor. The aircraft 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 can stay connected throughout the flight, with the airline offering unlimited, free high-speed Wi-Fi on all flights between New York and London. 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.

In addition to JetBlue’s extended 2022 schedule at Heathrow, the airline will continue to operate its daily service between New York-JFK and London Gatwick Airport (LGW) and plans to launch service between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and London in summer 2022.

All JetBlue flights between New York and London are operated using the Airbus A321LR aircraft.
