JetBlue has launched its inaugural transatlantic flights to Amsterdam, as demand for international travel continues to rise.
The low-cost carrier’s first flight from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport landed at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport on Monday, marking the airline’s first foray into the European market.
JetBlue’s entry into the transatlantic market comes as international travel gradually resumes following the COVID-19 pandemic. The airline plans to offer daily flights between New York and Amsterdam, with plans to expand its transatlantic services to London and Paris in the future.
In addition to its competitive fares, JetBlue is offering a range of amenities and services on its transatlantic flights, including complimentary meals, in-flight entertainment, and free Wi-Fi.
The launch of JetBlue’s transatlantic flights is expected to shake up the airline industry, as the low-cost carrier competes with established players like Delta, United, and American Airlines.
The airline’s entry into the European market is also seen as a positive sign for the aviation industry, which has been hit hard by the pandemic. As travel demand continues to rise, airlines are expected to ramp up their services and expand their routes, signaling a gradual return to normalcy for the industry.
