JetBlue sets launch dates for Amsterdam service

JetBlue has announced launch dates for its upcoming service to Amsterdam from New York JFK and Boston. Tickets for both routes are also now on sale. 

The carrier will begin daily JFK-Amsterdam service on Aug. 29. Daily Boston-Amsterdam service will follow on Sept. 20. 

Amsterdam will be the third European city and fourth European airport serviced by JetBlue, joining London Heathrow, London Gatwick and Paris de Gaulle. 

The carrier will compete against twice-daily Delta service on JFK-Amsterdam. KLM, a joint venture partner of Delta, flies the route 18 times weekly. In addition, United flies daily to Amsterdam from Newark.

JetBlue will compete against twice-daily Delta service on Boston-Amsterdam and four-times weekly KLM service. 

JetBlue confirmed earlier this month that it would fly to Amsterdam beginning late this summer, but it had not set launch dates until now.
