JetBlue Announces New Seasonal Service to Dublin and Edinburgh
The routes will depart from New York’s JFK and Boston.
JetBlue will be heading to Dublin and Edinburgh this summer in its latest transatlantic expansion, the airline announced on Wednesday.
The airline will begin daily seasonal service to Dublin from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport and Boston Logan International Airport on March 13, 2024, through Sept. 30, 2024. JetBlue will also begin daily seasonal service from New York-JFK to Edinburgh, on May 22, also through Sept. 30 2024.
Tickets are now on sale for both routes, with roundtrip fares starting at $399 for Dublin and $599 for Edinburgh in the “Core” experience. The “Mint” Cabin starts at $1,999 for Dublin and $2,499 for Edinburgh.
Both flights will operate on JetBlue’s fleet of A321neo aircraft, which have 20 percent greater fuel efficiency than previous planes. The aircraft features JetBlue Mint, an upgraded cabin experience with a flat-bed seat, additional dining options, bedding, and a privacy door. The economy cabin, known as “Core,” will have amenities such as free wifi and dining options curated by New York City restaurant DIG.
“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,” JetBlue’s Chief Operating Officer Robin Hayes said in a statement. “We look forward to introducing the JetBlue experience to business and leisure customers traveling this summer to and from Ireland and Scotland.”
JetBlue’s Dublin and Edinburgh route will mark its 5th and 6th transatlantic route, respectively, as the airline now serves London — at both Heathrow and Gatwick — Paris, and most recently, Amsterdam.
JetBlue also announced several schedule increases to Paris, with additional flight sections taking off next summer on April 3, 2024, ahead of the upcoming Summer Olympics. The airline will operate a new route from Boston to Paris / Charles de Gaulle Airport. The flight will also operate on a A321 with the Mint Class. Tickets are now on sale for the route, with roundtrips starting at $599 for “Core” and $2,499 for “Mint”. JetBlue will also add an extra flight from New York-JFK to Paris on June 20.
