JetBlue has expanded its Amsterdam service with new nonstop flights between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) with the inaugural flight operating this week.
The new transatlantic service follows the successful launch of service from New York’s JFK Airport (JFK) on August 29. From JetBlue’s Boston focus city, the carrier also offers a daily service to London and in 2024 will launch a service to Paris.
Connecting Boston to the Heart of Europe
JetBlue’s expansion into the Amsterdam market is a significant move, enhancing connectivity between the United States and one of Europe’s most vibrant cities.
From JetBlue’s focus city, Boston, travelers now have convenient access to the Netherlands’ capital, renowned for its rich history, picturesque canals, and vibrant culture.
Dave Clark, JetBlue’s head of revenue and planning, spoke on behalf of the US carrier, stating, “Our recently launched Amsterdam service from New York has already been very successful, and we are thrilled to expand our low fares and great service to Amsterdam to our Boston customers.”
“Adding nonstop service to Amsterdam benefits business and leisure customers who have suffered from high fares by legacy carriers for decades and brings more options to our customers in our New England focus city.”
Boosting Boston’s Tourism and Economy
JetBlue’s decision to introduce nonstop flights from Amsterdam to Boston is not only beneficial for travelers but also for the city itself.
Martha Sheridan, President & CEO of Meet Boston, emphasized the positive impact of this new service on the region’s economy, saying, “Boston destination partners are thrilled with the launch of this nonstop service from Amsterdam.”
“The Netherlands is a very important overseas source market for us, annually sending more than 30,000 visitors to our region, and these visitors inject upwards of $35 million into our regional economy.”
JetBlue’s expansion into key European markets serves as a vital conduit for Boston’s efforts to regain its market share of international visitors. This move is poised to strengthen the city’s tourism sector and foster economic growth.
A321 Long Range Aircraft
Travelers can expect a premium experience when flying with JetBlue on the Boston to Amsterdam route.
The airline will operate daily flights on its Airbus A321 Long Range (LR) aircraft, equipped with 24 redesigned Mint Suite® seats, 114 core seats, and the sleek and spacious Airspace cabin interior.
The A321 Long Range offers the range of a wide-body aircraft while maintaining the economic advantages of a single-aisle plane.
This innovative approach allows JetBlue to disrupt the market with its award-winning service and affordable fares, providing travelers with an exceptional flying experience.
JetBlue’s dedication to the communities it serves extends beyond excellent service. The airline has taken substantial steps toward environmental sustainability.
Aligned with the Paris Agreement, JetBlue has set a science-based target aiming to reduce aircraft emissions per seat by half by 2035 compared to 2019 levels.
The airline is working tirelessly to achieve this goal through a combination of external partnerships, advocating for industry advances in sustainability, and implementing internal efforts to drive operational efficiencies.
JetBlue’s ultimate objective is to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040, a full decade ahead of broader industry targets.
