Want to book a UK or European vacation this summer? Your low-cost overseas travel dreams are about to come true. JetBlue recently announced flights to London and we’ve got the deets for you!

The new routes, which will fly out of Boston and New York City, are set to start in the not-so-distant future. As the carrier’s first European destination, the London moves is making waves on both sides of the pond.

President and chief operating officer, JetBlue, Joanna Geraghty, said in a press release, “Twenty years ago, our founders had a simple formula for choosing a new market – it had to be overpriced, underserved or both.” Geraghty went on to add, “London is the largest metro area JetBlue doesn’t yet serve from both Boston and New York, and we could not be more thrilled to be changing that in the years ahead. The fares being charged today by airlines on these routes, specifically on the premium end, are enough to make you blush.”

Instead of having to choose between the typical high-priced business class fares or low-quality coach seats, JetBlue is reimagining the trans-Atlantic flight experience. The carrier’s Mint class will feature lie-flat seats and specially trained crewmembers. Geraghty said, of Mint, “he success Mint has had on driving down the exorbitant airfares that our competitors were charging, stimulating new demand and forcing the entrenched carriers to up their game, is a big reason we believe London is the next natural market for JetBlue to be successful and make a positive impact on consumers.”

While there’s no specific start date yet, JetBlue plans on offering its United States to London flights in 2021.
