JetBlue’s Inaugural Flight to Edinburgh: A New Transatlantic Venture

by Alice

Despite the light rain greeting my arrival in Edinburgh, my excitement soared as JetBlue’s inaugural flight from New York’s JFK International Airport touched down in the Scottish capital.

Departing from JFK approximately seven hours earlier, this milestone journey marked JetBlue’s debut flight to Edinburgh, its fifth European destination since the announcement last year.


“From humble beginnings, we’ve expanded to over 100 destinations in just 24 years,” remarked Warren Christie, JetBlue’s chief operating officer, during a pre-flight ceremony. “The addition of Edinburgh to our network reflects our commitment to delivering JetBlue’s renowned service and competitive fares to global travelers.”


Operating daily throughout the summer season until September 30, JetBlue’s Airbus A321neo aircraft will shuttle passengers between New York and Edinburgh. Departing New York at 9:12 p.m., the flight lands at 9:30 a.m. local time the following day. The return leg from Edinburgh departs at 12:30 p.m., arriving back in New York at 3:06 p.m. local time.


To commemorate the launch, JetBlue offers introductory fares starting at $499 roundtrip for Core and $2,999 for Mint. Travelers can avail of this offer by booking a roundtrip flight, staying for a minimum of three nights, and booking before May 24 for travel between May 28 and July 31.

Beyond Edinburgh, JetBlue’s European portfolio includes London (its inaugural European destination launched in 2021), Paris, Amsterdam, and Dublin, affirming its growing presence in the transatlantic market.
