With the addition this week of Amsterdam Schiphol, the transatlantic network of JetBlue now covers three cities in Europe served from New York JFK and one from Boston. Boston-Amsterdam will follow on September 20, but that completes the European network of the US carrier. For now, that is, as JetBlue has every intention to grow in Europe in the near future. What is transatlantic bringing to the US carrier? AirInsight spoke to Maja Gedosev, General Manager Europe, on the occasion of the first service to Schiphol on Wednesday.

But let’s put JetBlue’s transatlantic activities into perspective first. Since launching services from JFK to London Heathrow in August 2021, the airline has doubled them to daily. According to the website FlightsFrom.com, there are currently 22 daily flights between the two cities: two by JetBlue, eight by British Airways, six by Virgin Atlantic, four by American, and two by Delta Air Lines.
