JetBlue Extends London Heathrow Flights till October 2022

JetBlue Airways has extended its daily flights between New York and London Heathrow airport through October 2022. The New York based airline has acquired the required take-off and landing slots. The airline had originally acquired temporary slots at Heathrow this past year after larger airlines reduced flights due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The flights between JFK in New York City and Heathrow will be operated through the traditionally busy summer travel season. JetBlue hopes to take advantage of increasing demand for transatlantic travel.

The flights were officially announced early this year, and launched on August 11th. They are now scheduled to run once daily until 31 October 2022. Its presence at London Heathrow Airport gives the airline a global hub to build a new base of travelers in the U.K. and beyond.

“The response on both sides of the Atlantic has been overwhelmingly positive, and it’s now widely recognized that losing JetBlue on this route would be a major setback for travelers who enjoy low fares and great service,” said Robin Hayes, chief executive officer, JetBlue. “We are committed to collaborating with regulators as well as the U.S. and U.K. governments to identify a pathway to staying at Heathrow for the long-term. There’s so much more good we can do as we grow this route if we are allowed to stay and compete.”

JetBlue’s extended transatlantic schedule is on sale through October 31, 2022.
