US carrier JetBlue has announced its expansion into the transatlantic market to continental Europe, with the launch of new nonstop service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG).
This strategic move comes as JetBlue aims to cater to the increasing demand for flights between the two major destinations and challenge the dominance of high-fare legacy carriers.
A321 New York – Paris
JetBlue’s daily flights connecting New York to Paris, along with its successful routes between the U.S. and London, and the upcoming service to Amsterdam, demonstrate the airline’s commitment to disrupting traditional transatlantic travel.
In 2024, JetBlue plans to further expand its European operations by introducing service between Boston and Paris.
Robin Hayes, the CEO of JetBlue, expressed excitement about the airline’s arrival in Paris and its potential to bring fresh and innovative choices to the transatlantic market.
He emphasized that JetBlue’s award-winning service and affordable fares would provide a superior travel experience for both business and leisure customers flying to and from Paris.
The flights between New York and Paris will be operated by JetBlue’s Airbus A321 Long Range (LR) aircraft, featuring 24 redesigned Mint Suite® seats, 114 core seats, and the sleek and spacious Airspace cabin interior.
The A321’s wide-body range and single-aisle economics enable JetBlue to disrupt the market by offering its renowned service and low fares on transatlantic flights.
Bienvenue, Charles de Gaulle
Charles de Gaulle Airport, situated just 16 miles northeast of Paris, serves as a major international hub with over 76 million travelers in 2019.
JetBlue’s presence at Charles de Gaulle will provide the airline with visibility in a key global transportation hub, allowing it to attract a new base of travelers from France and beyond.
JetBlue will operate from Terminal 2B at Charles de Gaulle Airport, offering passengers a modern airport experience with a wide range of shops, restaurants, and convenient ground transportation options to various parts of Paris and other French regions.
