JetBlue has added daily nonstop service between Boston and Amsterdam, with the departure of the inaugural flight on Wednesday, September 20, 2023. This follows the carrier’s successful launch of JFK-Amsterdam service on August 29th.
On Wednesday (September 20, 2023), JetBlue announced the departure of their inaugural flight between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS).

JetBlue also currently flies from Boston to London, and will launch new service between Boston and Pairs in 2024.
In Wednesday’s announcement, JetBlue’s Head of Revenue and Planning, Dave Clark, said,
“Our recently launched Amsterdam service from New York has already been very successful and we are thrilled to expand our low fares and great service to Amsterdam to our Boston customers. Adding nonstop service to Amsterdam benefits business and leisure customers who have suffered from high fares by legacy carriers for decades and brings more options to our customers in our New England focus city.”
Also commenting on the route launch, Meet Boston’s President and CEO, Martha Sheridan, said,
“Boston destination partners are thrilled with the launch of this nonstop service from Amsterdam. The Netherlands is a very important overseas source market for us, annually sending more than 30,000 visitors to our region and these visitors inject upwards of $35 million into our regional economy. JetBlue's expansion into key European markets is a critical conduit for Boston to fully recover its market share of international visitors.”
