JetBlue is set to launch its inaugural flight to continental Europe by starting to fly between the United States and Paris in the near future.

JetBlue has announced to Travel + Leisure that it will commence nonstop flights from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport beginning in the summer of 2023. After that, the airline will expand its services to Paris by adding flights from Boston Logan International Airport.

JetBlue said seats for the new flights from New York City to Paris will go on sale “in the coming months.”

“JetBlue is offering something completely unique to what you get from the big global legacy airlines on these routes – where a single high-fare joint venture operates nearly three-quarters of the flying,” Robin Hayes, the chief executive officer at JetBlue, said in a statement provided to T+L. “The response to our London service is proof that combining great service with low fares works. We can’t wait to bring our reimagined Mint and core offerings to Continental Europe’s most visited city.”

JetBlue’s forthcoming Paris route will be serviced by its Airbus A321 Long Range (LR) aircraft, offering passengers a travel experience akin to the airline’s transatlantic service to London. Travelers will be able to enjoy several of JetBlue’s signature amenities, such as complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi and live TV channels, while also benefiting from spacious overhead bins.

Moreover, the flight will feature the company’s revamped Mint seats, designed to provide passengers with ultimate comfort and privacy during long-haul flights. To enhance the culinary experience, JetBlue has partnered with Dig, offering a build-your-own meal concept that caters to a variety of dietary preferences. Since launching its London service in August 2021, JetBlue has expanded its network to include more destinations, making international travel more convenient for its customers.

In addition to its expansion into Europe, JetBlue is also broadening its reach through various partnerships and mergers. For instance, the airline recently expanded its codeshare agreement with Qatar Airways, facilitating travel to more destinations across Africa and Asia. Furthermore, JetBlue has agreed to acquire Spirit Airlines earlier this year in a merger that is expected to elevate the airline’s ranking to the fifth largest in the United States.
