Fast expanding jetBlue Airways has secured slots at Gatwick and Stansted, but was denied access to Heathrow when the latest allocations were announced by Airport Coordination Ltd.
No date for the new services has been announced but they could commence to coincide with IATA 2021 (see BTN 30 November).
Flying two-class Airbus A321 LR jets it is thought likely that Boston will gain twice daily services from Stansted and New York Kennedy a single return flight to Gatwick although there is no restriction on which US airport to use.
“We are confident that we have a viable path into more than one London airport,” jetBlue Communications Manager Phillip Stewart told Aviation Week Network in response to a query. “JetBlue has applied for multiple slots at various London airports and remains committed to launching service in 2021. We continue to review opportunities available to us and will share more details as this process advances.”
