JetBlue has expanded its transatlantic offerings with new, non-stop flights to Edinburgh taking off from New York.

Daily summer-seasonal service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Edinburgh Airport (EDI) will operate through September 30, 2024.

This new service, only the second direct offering from New York’s JFK to Edinburgh, provides much-needed competition for customers travelling in and out of New York.

Marty St. George, President, JetBlue said:

“We look forward to connecting Scotland and the Northeast this summer with our award-winning Mint and core service that will bring this signature JetBlue experience to Edinburgh.”

Jim Fairlie, Connectivity Minister said:

“This is the first time JetBlue has served Scotland and it demonstrates the confidence they have in the Scottish market.

“It also strengthens Edinburgh Airport’s case for establishing a U.S. pre-clearance border facility to help make travel more seamless and provide added benefits for Scottish businesses and visitors.

Malcolm Roughead, Chief Executive of VisitScotland, said:

“We are excited to welcome JetBlue to Scotland with the launch of this new direct service. North America is our most valuable international visitor market, and we are seeing record levels of demand here, welcoming almost one million visitors last year, surpassing not only pre-pandemic levels but also other parts of the UK.”

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said:

“Transatlantic travel from Edinburgh has been a real success story and adding more capacity to New York opens up another route for passengers to travel to and from Scotland and the USA, bringing our two countries even closer together.

“It’s always great to see a new airline make its home in Edinburgh and we are really looking forward to welcoming JetBlue’s passengers and our new colleagues to Scotland’s capital.”
