JetBlue has increased its transatlantic presence with the introduction of a new nonstop service between New York JFK and London Gatwick Airport. The program will be offered four times each week in October, then daily beginning in November.

It comes just in time for the long-awaited relaxation of US admission procedures for visitors from the United Kingdom and other European countries.

“With a 500% increase in JetBlue’s UK bookings following news of easing US entry requirements for international travelers, it’s clear that there is significant pent-up demand for travel between our two countries and that our Gatwick launch is well-timed to meet the growing number of customers returning to the skies,” said Joanna Geraghty, President, and Chief Operating Officer, JetBlue.

“JetBlue’s new Gatwick service, which is supplemented by our recently launched Heathrow flights, introduces an entirely new option for London travelers, who will no longer have to choose between an attractive fare and great service as they reunite with family, friends, and colleagues on either side of the Atlantic.”

JetBlue’s entrance at Gatwick follows the airline’s August launch at Heathrow, which marked the beginning of the airline’s first-ever transatlantic service.

JetBlue service at Heathrow has been established, and flights at Gatwick now bring the airline’s London operation in line with JetBlue’s successful multi-airport model in New York, Los Angeles, South Florida, and other regions.

“I am happy and excited to welcome JetBlue to Gatwick,” Gatwick CEO Stewart Wingate said. “Travel restrictions between the UK and the US are gradually being lifted, so fully vaccinated passengers may now book this exciting new route with confidence.

London to New York has historically been the world’s most popular international route, and given JetBlue’s incredibly competitive pricing and high-quality service, I anticipate that this new route will be extremely popular.

Anyone planning a well-deserved Christmas vacation or a long-overdue business trip to New York should book this new service as soon as possible to prevent disappointment.”

JetBlue’s new A321 Long Range (LR) aircraft are used for the flights.

Meanwhile, service to London from Boston Logan International Airport is set to begin in the summer of 2022.
