US low-cost airline JetBlue has expanded its transatlantic services between the US and Europe with the launch of a new route between Boston and Paris, France, alongside plans to add additional flights to the French capital from New York. 

The Paris route comes thanks to the airline’s success with flights to the city from New York’s JFK International and also becomes JetBlue’s fourth European service from Boston, joining its existing flights to London, UK, and Amsterdam, the Netherlands, as well as the recently launched Boston to Dublin, Ireland route. 

Dave Clark, head of revenue and planning for JetBlue, said: “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. 

“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.” 

As with most of JetBlue’s transatlantic routes, the daily flights to Pairs Charles de Gaulle Airport will be operated by Airbus A321LR aircraft, with the company saying the model allows it to “effectively disrupt the transatlantic market”.

The move continues JetBlue’s confidence in its transatlantic offerings, which only launched in 2021, and is part of wider expansions which will include more frequent flights and new destinations such as Edinburgh, Scotland.

It comes as JetBlue works to return to profitability after a difficult 12 months that saw courts knock down both its Northeast Alliance with American Airlines in New York and Boston, and its proposed $3.8bn acquisition of Spirit Airlines

New CEO Joanna Geraghty also described 2024 as “an important year of change” for the airline at the end of 2023, citing a desire to “refocus” the company’s energy and “play to [its] strengths.”
