JetBlue Airways announced on Tuesday that it will begin offering flights from New York City, United States to Amsterdam, taking advantage of the high demand for transatlantic travel.

This decision was made just days after the Dutch government’s plan to limit flights at Schiphol Airport was overruled by a court. Despite the high cost of airfares and potential airport congestion in Europe, online searches by Americans for flights to Europe have been on the rise.
