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.
JetBlue has launched a new sale in which it’s offering travelers a free companion flight when they purchase a flight + hotel package by Monday, 8 February.
When JetBlue rolled out its domestic 'Mint' Business Class cabin almost seven years ago the product was a game-changer. JetBlue brought down the cost of US transcontinental Business Class fares while offering an excellent product and it shook up the market. Now, JetBlue has turned its sights on the Business Class transatlantic market, and the product it will be using on its new routes could well change the game again.
JetBlue has announced that it plans to add 24 new routes to its network from later this year with a view to concentrating on leisure destinations served from the airline's focus cities around the United States. With multiple new flights to cities across the US, Latin America, and the Caribbean, this is the airline's attempt at shoring up its finances while, business travel continues to show little sign of recovery.
American Airlines and JetBlue have today announced that they are entering into a strategic partnership that will see American Airlines launch new international services out of New York JFK, JetBlue expanding at all three New York airports, and members of both airlines' loyalty programs enjoying reciprocal elite benefits.
JetBlue has offered a nice distraction from the current travel crisis to announce a series of new routes out of nine East Coast/Florida airports and the introduction of its acclaimed Mint Business Class cabin to two new transcontinental routes out of New York Newark airport. Additionally, the airline also announced that nine temporarily closed cities and several summer seasonal destinations will reopen in early July.
