JetBlue to Launch Flights to Amsterdam

JetBlue has announced plans for new service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) starting late this summer and service between Boston and Amsterdam to follow. Amsterdam will be JetBlue’s third transatlantic city following the airline’s successful launch of service to London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports in 2021 and to Paris coming this June.

(By way of background, last week, a Dutch court ruled that its government failed to follow the law when it sought to reduce the cap on Amsterdam Airport Schiphol’s annual air traffic movements, giving JetBlue confidence there is room for it to enter the market.)

Known for its historic buildings, world-famous museums and canals, Amsterdam is one of the most visited cities in the world. JetBlue’s new service to Amsterdam will provide the airline with a high visibility at another top airport in Europe and establish a new customer base of travelers looking to connect between Europe and the U.S. Flights will operate daily on JetBlue’s Airbus A321 Long Range (LR) aircraft with 24 redesigned Mint Suite seats and 114 core seats. Seats will go on sale in the coming weeks.

JetBlue Mint offers fully lie-flat private suites with a sliding door—including two Mint Studio seats—and a custom-designed seat cushion developed by mattress company Tuft & Needle. Its proprietary T&N Adaptive foam with a breathable cover creates a comfortable sleep experience. Customers in both core and Mint can stay connected throughout the flight with unlimited, free high-speed Wi-Fi. 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.

Among JetBlue’s climate commitments is a goal to reach net-zero by 2040, 10 years ahead of broader industry goals as well as a recently approved science-based target to effectively cut aircraft emissions in half by 2035 from 2019 levels. With six sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) agreements in the U.S., the airline continues to work toward a more sustainable future of flight and explore additional SAF opportunities in its European destinations.
