(WJXT/CNN) - JetBlue is considering flights to Europe for the first time ever.

The airline's low-cost model threatens to disrupt the pricey transatlantic market.

A spokesperson for the company says JetBlue likes going into markets with high fares and stimulating them with lower prices.

JetBlue currently flies across the U.S., the Caribbean and Latin America.

No final decision has been made about the possible European venture.
