JetBlue ready to ‘shake things up’ with new transatlantic route from Boston

JetBlue has successfully launched its new transatlantic service, from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) in the United States (US) to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) in France. 

The JetBlue Airbus A321-271NX, registered N4064J, completed the inaugural flight, departing Boston on April 3, 2024.

It follows the successful launch of JetBlue’s service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Paris last summer.   

JetBlue believes that the new route will give New England customers more options when traveling into Europe. 

In addition to Paris, JetBlue currently offers daily service to London and Amsterdam, and most recently it initiated a seasonal service to Dublin from Boston. 

“The response to our New York-Paris flight has been overwhelming and we’ve been looking forward to adding a daily flight from Boston as well,” said Dave Clark, Head of Revenue and Planning at JetBlue. “Boston customers have not had a lot of choices when flying to Paris, so we are more than happy to step in with affordable fares and an incredible onboard experience to shake things up and finally bring some real competition into this market.”

Currently, both Delta Air Lines and Air France fly directly between Boston Logan Airport and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. 

JetBlue’s flights will operate daily on the airline’s Airbus A321 Long Range aircraft, complete with 114 core seats plus 24 redesigned ‘Mint Suite’ seats, which feature fully lie-flat private suites with a sliding door.  

Flights will depart BOS at 20:00 and arrive at CDG the following day at 09:15. Flights from CDG will leave Paris at 11:15 and arrive in Boston at 13:02.  

“JetBlue has been a great partner to Logan for many years and we are excited that they are launching Boston – Paris,” Massport’s Interim CEO and Director of Aviation Ed Freni, said. “This new flight gives our passengers even more choice to visit Europe and all the sights across the Atlantic.” 

In addition, JetBlue plans to add a second daily flight from New York’s JFK to Paris starting from June 20, 2024.
