JetBlue adds Amsterdam service from Boston

JetBlue starts daily nonstop service between Boston and Amsterdam

The U.S. carrier JetBlue has launched its new direct service to Amsterdam from Boston, with the first eastbound flight taking place yesterday and the first westbound flight this morning. 

The new service follows the successful launch of the airline's launch of service from New York’s JFK Airport (JFK) on 29th August, as Dave Clark, JetBlue's head of revenue and planning explains: "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.”

Martha Sheridan, Meet Boston President & CEO said:  "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 is a critical conduit for Boston to fully recover its market share of international visitors."

Daily service

*all times local

BOS - AMS Flight #31     22:13 - 09:35 (+1)

Flights will operate daily on JetBlue’s Airbus A321 Long Range (LR) aircraft with 24 redesigned Mint Suite seats, 114 core seats and the sleek and spacious Airspace cabin interior. The A321 – offering the range of a wide-body but with the economics of a single-aisle aircraft will, according to the airline, allow it to effectively disrupt the market and enable JetBlue to offer comparatively low fares.  

Located only 10 miles from Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport is one of the largest and most important airports in Europe with over 71 million passengers per year. JetBlue’s presence at Schiphol Airport gives the U.S.-based travel provider visibility at an iconic global hub to build a new base of travellers in the Netherlands and beyond.

The airline’s Mint premium experience – which first raised the bar on transcontinental travel in the U.S. and was reimagined for transatlantic flying – offers customers a fresh choice when flying between the U.S. and Europe. JetBlue Mint features 24 fully lie-flat private suites with a sliding door – including two Mint Studio seats – and a custom-designed seat cushion developed by innovative mattress company Tuft & Needle. Its proprietary T&N Adaptive foam with a breathable cover creates a cool and comfortable sleep experience, unlike anything in the sky. Mint also boasts countless intuitive design touches that help every customer feel at home in the air. JetBlue has also introduced its latest innovation – the stunning Mint Studio – offering even more space in a premium experience.

JetBlue’s industry-leading core experience was also reinvented for transatlantic flying and offers a new level of service to customers who generally fly “coach” but still want a great experience at an attractive fare. With just 114 core seats – including 24 Even More Space Seats – customers enjoy a boutique-style experience no matter where they sit. All of the comforts JetBlue customers have come to expect are enhanced by the airline’s partnership with New York-based restaurant group Dig, to bring its signature build-your-own dining concept to tray tables at 35,000 feet – JetBlue’s complimentary meal in core. Core customers also enjoy a free selection of soft drinks, coffee, tea, beer, wine and liquor. The A321LR features new extra-large overhead bins, and all customers, regardless of fare type, may bring one carry-on, space permitting, and one personal item.

Customers in both core and Mint stay connected throughout the flight with unlimited, free high-speed Wi-Fi on every plane. Additionally, customers have access to a curated selection of live TV channels – focused on news and sports – and an extensive library of seatback entertainment, allowing customers to have a multiple-screen experience onboard – just like they do at home.
