JetBlue is obviously very happy with how its first foray into the transatlantic market has been going (the airline's London routes) because it has just announced that it will be adding two new transatlantic services to Paris next year.
JetBlue has made a number of announcements today that see the airline firming up its position at London Heathrow, expanding the service that it offers between New York JFK and London Gatwick, and slightly improving its customers' ground experiences at London's two biggest airports.
The JetBlue and American Airlines "Northeast Alliance" may still be facing a number of regulatory hurdles, but that doesn't appear to have slowed down the number of new routes and added route frequencies that we've seen JetBlue bring to fruition in the past year. The latest announcement sees the airline confirming that it has lauched its newest leisure route between New York JFK and Mexico's Pacific Coast.
It was back in April that JetBlue first told us that it was planning to leverage its new partnership with American Airlines to help it significantly increase its presence at New York's LaGuardia airport, and now the airline has confirmed that we'll start to see that expansion roll out from this weekend.
JetBlue has launched what it's calling its 2021 Monster Sale which is offering fares from $31 one-way and whose discounts aren't available anywhere other than on the JetBlue website. The sale is running through Friday 29 October so there isn't long to book any bargains that you may find.
Earlier this year, JetBlue finally got the London Heathrow slots that it so desperately needs to give its new transatlantic routes the best possible chance of success, and today the airline finally put the routes from New York to Heathrow and Gatwick on sale. There's good news for US travelers but it's the UK-based travelers that will probably be cheering loudest.
Yesterday, American Airlines confirmed that it will be adding 18 new domestic and international routes out of the Northeast as part of its new partnership with JetBlue and as I covered that news at the time, it's only fair to cover the news that JetBlue will also be adding new domestic and international routes out of New York - there will be 15 new routes in total.
American Airlines and JetBlue have today announced that they're moving forward with their previously announced agreement by codesharing on 80 flights out of New York and Boston. More importantly for American Airlines loyalists, we've also been told that the new tie-up with JetBlue will see American launch 12 new domestic routes and 6 new international routes out of New York and Boston this year.

For the past two days, JetBlue has been running a very nice sale across most of the routes that it operates but today is the last day to lock-in the savings that the airline is offering. It doesn't look like there are any major discounts available on Mint Business Class bookings but there are some very promising-looking discounts in Economy Class.
