The carrier currently offers daily nonstop service to London, Paris and Amsterdam from New York and London and Amsterdam from Boston.
“The success of our transatlantic service proves customers don’t have to choose between great service and low fares and can have them both with our award-winning Mint and core products,” said Robin Hayes, chief executive officer, JetBlue. “Our summer seasonal service to Dublin and Edinburgh will bring a new level of service and affordable fares to these markets that have been dominated by high-fare legacy carriers for decades. We look forward to introducing the JetBlue experience to business and leisure customers traveling this summer to and from Ireland and Scotland.”
I recently flew Jet Blue’s Mint Studio and Mint Suite and was very impressed with the onboard product and service. You can read my reviews here.
Flights to Dublin and Edinburgh will operate daily on JetBlue’s Airbus A321neo with Mint® aircraft with 16 redesigned Mint Suite® seats, 144 core seats and the sleek and spacious Airspace cabin interior.
Seats on the Dublin and Edinburgh routes are on sale starting today with low fares for U.S.-originating travellers starting at $399 and $599 roundtrip for the airline’s award-winning core experience and starting at $1,999 and $2,499 for JetBlue’s premium Mint experience.
