Jetblue To Start Boston to London This Summer

JetBlue announced its plans to offer twice daily flights from Boston to London this summer. The carrier will offer nonstop service from the Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to both London’s Gatwick Airport (LGW) and Heathrow Airport (LHR). 

Flights between Gatwick and Boston will begin mid-summer on July 19, 2022, with its London Heathrow service beginning later in the summer on August 22, 2022. 

Daily Schedule between Boston (BOS) and London Gatwick (LGW) 

Beginning July 19, 2022 (Eastbound) & July 20, 2022 (Westbound)

6:37 p.m. – 6:35 a.m. (+1) 12:15 p.m. – 3:02 p.m.

6:32 p.m. – 6:30 a.m. (+1) 8:25 a.m. – 11:13 a.m.

“Our strategy of flying to both Heathrow and Gatwick Airports has been a success for us in New York, and we’ve secured slots to be able to do the same in Boston, becoming the only airline in New England offering flights to London’s two main airports,” said JetBlue’s chief executive officer, Robin Hayes.

“Our London service has been an incredible success so far and we’ve been able to go in with our unbeatable JetBlue service and experience and bring down fares on a traditionally overpriced route – the JetBlue Effect in action. We’re ready to do the same at Logan as we advance our growth strategies in both Boston and London.”

The announcement reinforced JetBlue’s commitment to the Massachusetts area. JetBlue continues to hold the title of Boston’s largest airline, serving more nonstop destinations than any other airline in Boston, with nearly 70 nonstop routes across the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America. Boston is also home to nearly 4,000 JetBlue crewmembers, with plans to hire more this year. 

“JetBlue has been a great partner to Logan for many years and we are excited that they are launching two London – Boston services this summer,” said Ed Freni, Massport’s Director of Aviation. “These new flights give our passengers even more choice when they cross the Atlantic.”

The New York-based carrier will utilize its Airbus A321 Long Range (LR) aircraft for both Gatwick and Heathrow routes. Within Jetblue’s unique Airspace cabin interior, the aircraft is configured with 24 redesigned Mint suites allowing extra privacy through the use of sliding doors and 114 Ultraleather ‘Core’ seats, each at 18.4 inches wide. Each guest will also have access to AC and USB-C power.

Passengers in both core and Mint can stay connected through JetBlues free inflight wifi. Currently, JetBlue is the only airline to offer unlimited, free high-speed Wi-Fi on all flights between Boston and London. Additionally, customers have access to a selection of live TV channels and a library of seatback entertainment.

Seats on the carrier’s new London routes went on sale Tuesday with introductory roundtrip fares for U.S.-originating travelers flying to Gatwick starting at $499 roundtrip for the core experience and at $1,949 for JetBlue’s premium Mint experience. Roundtrip fares to Heathrow will cost a bit more, starting at $549 for core and $1,999 for Mint. U.K.-originating travelers introductory fares start at £349 for core and £1,449 for Mint from Gatwick with roundtrip fares from Heathrow start at £399 for core and £1,499 for Mint.

The announcement will bring JetBlue’s total daily London flights to four, as they currently continue to serve the JFK to the London market with flights twice daily.
