JetBlue to begin scheduled flights with its first Airbus A321neo

New York - The first Airbus A321neo of JetBlue Airways is set to begin flights on Sept. 24 between Fort Lauderdale and JFK.

The low-cost US carrier is undergoing a transformative period during which the airline will add the longer-range new-generation planes to its fleet and expand its route network to the transatlantic destinations such as London, UK.

To this end, the airline converted 13 aircraft in its existing Airbus A321neo order book to the extra-long-range variant A321XLR during the Paris Air Show in June with deliveries scheduled to start in 2023.

JetBlue Airways has 84 Airbus A321neo in its order book with the European aircraft manufacturer, including 13 A321LR (deliveries to begin in 2021) and 13 A321XLR.

The American budget specialist received its first Airbus A321neo at the end of June. The aircraft has been operated for test flights and crew training on some domestic and Caribbean routes from Fourthlauderdale.

From Dec. 5, JetBlue will officially launch a new service to Guayaquil in Ecuador from JFK with its new A321neo.
