JetBlue to add extra daytime flight from JFK to LHR

Additional Heathrow Slots Allow JetBlue to Offer Customers a More Diverse Schedule of Flying Between the U.S. and the U.K.

New York's hometown airline, JetBlue has launched a programme to enhance its transatlantic operations to London with a new daytime flight option.

Starting March 25, 2023, the carrier is going to be offering a new morning departure from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to London Heathrow Airport (LHR).  This will give travellers the all-new option to arrive in the United Kingdom the same day they depart the United States. 

The new flight is a direct result of JetBlue obtaining an additional pair of slots at Heathrow, further enhancing the carrier's presence at the U.K.’s busiest airport.

JetBlue is currently the only U.S. carrier to serve both Gatwick and Heathrow, offering customers on both sides of the Atlantic greater choice and convenience. JetBlue’s multi-airport approach in London, with diversified flying at two of the U.K.’s busiest airports, has already allowed the airline to grow a meaningful customer base of loyal transatlantic fliers and build valuable relationships with key teams at both airports.

JetBlue flights between the U.S. and London feature premium Mint suites and the airline’s award-winning core seats. JetBlue offers the most legroom in coach (a), on-demand entertainment on every seatback, free and fast Fly-Fi broadband internet (b), complimentary snacks and soft drinks, and great customer service. JetBlue’s entrance into the transatlantic has introduced a new era of customer-focused, low-fare travel for leisure and business travellers.

Customers in both core and Mint can stay connected throughout the flight, with JetBlue being the only airline to offer all travellers unlimited, free high-speed wi-fi on flights between the U.S. and the U.K. Additionally, customers have access to a curated selection of seatback entertainment, allowing customers to have a multiple screen experience onboard – just like they do at home.
