1st Edit 12:25 PT 7 March: JetBlue’s Twitter team has now confirmed that bookings originating in Paris are not yet available. No explanation has yet been given (that I know of) as to why this is the case.

2nd Edit 13:45 PT 7 March: It turns out that while you cannot book JetBlue’s new route on JetBlue’s website if you want to originate in Paris, you can book it via select 3rd party operators (OTAs). 

Towards the end of November last year, JetBlue announced that following the success of its transatlantic routes to/from London, it would be launching new routes to Paris in 2023 and beyond. Today, the first of those routes has been opened up for bookings and there are a few discounted deals available (in both cabins) to celebrate the new flights.

JetBlue’s new Paris routes

We already knew that JetBlue planned to launch a new nonstop service between New York JFK and Paris CDG in the coming summer and that, at a later date, it plans to launch a second nonstop route to Paris from Boston. What we didn’t know is when the first route would be launched and what prices would look like. Now, we do.

JetBlue will launch a daily non-stop service between New York JFK and Paris CDG on 29 June 2023 on the following schedule:

B61407 JFK 17:09 – 06:55+1 day CDG (Daily)
B61408 CDG 08:55 – 11:51 JFK (Daily)*

*The first departure from CDG will be on 30 June 2023

Introductory pricing

JetBlue has said that it has released a limited number of seats at special discounted prices to celebrate the launch of the new route.

Customers originating in the U.S. can book fares starting at $479 round-trip for Economy Class and fares starting at $1,899 for JetBlue’s Mint Business Class cabin.

For customers originating in France, round-trip Economy Class fares are said to start at €399 while round-trip Mint Business Class fares are said to start at just €1,299.

At the time of writing, however, there appears to be an issue with the JetBlue website/booking engine as regardless of which dates I choose, the airline shows absolutely no availability (in either cabin) for travel originating in Paris.

Hopefully, by the time you’re reading this that the issue will have been resolved as €1,299 for round-trip transatlantic Business Class travel is a great deal.

EDITED 12:25 PT 7 March: JetBlue has now responded to a tweet of mine with this message:

This seems more than a little odd and begs the question why JetBlue was publicizing promotional fares from Paris when it knew that fares originating in Paris were not bookable. I wonder if this is an example of amateurish incompetence at JetBlue HQ or if an unforeseen error has occurred in the airline’s systems?

The aircraft & cabins

The new Paris routes will be operated by the same A321LR aircraft that JetBlue currently operates to/from London and this means that Business Class passengers will have access to the newest (and highly acclaimed) Mint cabin.

The A321LR offers…

  • 2 Mint Studio seats (the largest Business Class seats the airline offers)
  • 22 Mint Business Class seats
  • 24 Even More Space Economy Class seats
  • 90 standard Economy Class seats

The aircraft also provides passengers with free unlimited high-speed wi-fi, AC power, USB-A power, USB-C power, and extra large overhead bins.

Bottom line

JetBlue will finally launch its new service between New York JFK and Paris CDG on 29 June this year. Bookings for the new route are now open, although at the time of writing, the JetBlue website appears to be experiencing issues and it is unable to price up trips that originate in Paris.
