Shares of JetBlue Airways Corp. /zigman2/quotes/207639051/composite JBLU -1.48% edged up 0.3% in premarket trading Thursday, after the air carrier's first transatlantic flight was completed. The company said it kicked off its transatlantic service with new nonstop service between New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport to London's Heathrow Airport, with the first "customer-carrying" flight landing Thursday morning at 10 a.m. local time. "With JetBlue now connecting New York and London, travelers finally have the ability to enjoy low fares while also experiencing superior service," said Chief Executive Robin Hayes. "As the U.K. opens to travelers coming from America, our flights are well timed to meet the pent up demand for travel between our two countries. We look forward to welcoming U.K. travelers to the U.S. soon and launching service between Boston and London next year." JetBlue's stock has gained 8.9% year to date through Wednesday, while the U.S. Global Jets ETF /zigman2/quotes/207744796/composite JETS -1.40% has tacked on 5.0% and the S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX -0.11% has advanced 18.4%.
