Gary McLean, Managing Director at Dublin Airport, added: “The arrival of JetBlue to Dublin Airport is very good news for both passengers and Ireland and these new direct routes between Dublin and New York and Boston are going to prove really popular.

JetBlue’s expands Europe network to five destinations

JetBlue now serves four European cities and five airports on the continent. The airline began its Europe venture with the introduction of flights from Boston and New York JFK to both London LHR and London LGW in 2021. This was followed by the addition of flights from the two US cities to Paris and Amsterdam.

Following the introduction of its Dublin flights, the carrier plans to add a seasonal summer service from New York JFK to Edinburgh on 22 May. As a result, during the peak of the summer season, the airline will have a total of 91-weekly flights from the US to Europe, with 13,174 seats available each way. All routes will be maintained daily, with exception to flights between New York JFK, Paris CDG and London LHR which will run 2-daily.

Travellers from the US account for nearly 20% of all overseas tourism to Ireland, and Dublin has been among the most requested European destinations previously unserved by JetBlue.
