JetBlue one step closer to European flights: unveils tailfin of its first A321LR


September 22, 2020 / Jetblue (B6) is one step closer to its first transatlantic service. The New York-based carrier unveiled a few pics taken inside Airbus final assembly facility in Hamburg, Germany, which show a new tailfin design adorning its first A321LR aircraft, which will operate flights to London from New York (JFK) and Boston (BOS) in 2021. “Color us excited! The rollout of our London service next year just got real with this sneak peek at our first new pond-hopping A321LR. The tailfin pattern is aptly named Streamers—as in jetstream and as in let’s jet the party started!” tweeted the airline.

Despite the COVID pandemic and the consequent massive reduction in air travel demand, Jetblue remains confident in the possibility to launch its inaugural intercontinental services sometimes next year. Beside the A321LRs it has on order, last year B6 converted 13 existing A321neo orders into A321XLR, the extra long-range version of the aircraft offering a range of up to 8,300km. Jetblue is known for its unique tailfin designs, from ‘Barcode’ and ‘Bubbles’ to ‘Mosaic’ and ‘Tartan’. (Photo Airbus)
