If Paris is on your radar next summer, you might want to take a look at this new flight! The American low-cost airline has launched a new route from New York to Paris and is currently offering tickets on sale starting at $470 roundtrip.
In a press release, the carrier explained that the service would begin on June 29 and added details of the new schedule. This route is the second transatlantic destination the carrier offers, after the recent services offered to London.
JetBlue has included domestic and international services to top destinations for its customers. A few months ago, the carrier announced new summer flights to four Caribbean destinations: Bermuda, Bahamas, Jamaica, and Aruba.
Besides the new routes, Jetblue has also recently updated its menu and is now including tasty meals and new alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage options that will be appreciated by customers, especially during long-haul flights.
Here’s what travelers should know about the new route to Paris, including itineraries, rates, and travel experience.
New Route From New York To Paris
Paris is always on travelers’ bucket lists! Despite being considered an overrated destination, Americans want to experience, first hand, this fascinating city.
And now that Jetblue is offering low-cost alternatives, more travelers will want to go. The carrier will serve the route daily, from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG). These will be the itineraries starting on June 29:
- From JFK to CDG: Flight number is 1407, departs at 5:09 p.m. and arrives in Paris at 6:55 a.m. the next day.
- From CDG to JFK: Flight number is 1408, departs at 8:55 a.m. and arrives in New York at 11:51 a.m.
The airline will use Airbus A321 Long Range (LR) aircraft with 114 core seats and 24 redesigned seats for Mint—the carrier’s premium option. Jetblue is offering introductory fares from the United States starting at $479 for core seats and $1,899 for Mint experience, available on the carrier’s official website.
Travelers located in France will get to buy introductory fares at €1,299 for Mint and €399 for core through their preferred travel agency or online platform.
JetBlue’s Long-Haul Inflight Experience
The carrier has been successfully serving flights to London, and its team assures that travelers will have a high-quality experience for a low price. Robin Hayes, JetBlue’s chief executive officer, said that the low fares do not compromise their service.
Hayes also added: “We are excited to continue disrupting the transatlantic market and offer business and leisure customers traveling to and from Paris an opportunity to experience our highly acclaimed Mint and core products in a market that has suffered from high fares by legacy carriers for far too long.”
JetBlue has also highlighted its spacious aircraft and wide seats, allowing travelers to travel comfortably without paying a fortune, even at their regular core seats. Passengers also have access to on-demand entertainment, live television, free wi-fi, as well as complimentary snacks and soft drinks for the route.
For this new service to Paris, travelers who purchase the Premium Mint experience will get to choose from “fully lie-flat private suites with a sliding door” and custom-designed seats. The carrier also has two Mint Studio, which features large TV screens measuring 22”, the largest TV on a U.S. airline. The Mint experience offers the best seats and inflight services.
Regarding food, the carrier has highlighted its alliance with the restaurant group Dig, now offering the airline’s core customers a special build-your-own meal concept with seasonal flavors. Mint travelers will get services provided by Delicious Hospitality Group with versions of the Charlie Bird restaurant, like Mushroom Lasagna or Burrata.
Travelers can learn more about the carrier’s services to European destinations on the U.K. and Europe page, where the airline keeps updated information regarding inflight services, the different seat options, internet service, entertainment options, and food and beverage alternatives.
