JetBlue To Fly To Heathrow
JetBlue has officially secured slots at London Heathrow airport. For us in the community, they have not announced anything else really. They have said that they will launch a refreshed mint product, which is incredible on transcontinental flights, buts I’m excited to see what they will do in the A321LR transatlantic. JetBlue will be launching flights from Boston and New York JFK to London Heathrow. We are assuming it will be one time daily, but if they’re able to secure more slots, it’s likely that we could see more than one daily flight.
However, they have confirmed that these flights will be starting in 2021 once they receive the aircraft. These plans will likely start in October, once the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed down (hopefully we’ll see). They have currently ordered 13 A321LRs and 13 A321XLRs, so I’m excited to see where they will take these extra long range aircraft, as they start expanding their European footprint.
