Emirates Airline has struck an interline agreement with JetBlue Airways which will see travellers offered seamless connections to cities across the globe via New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Over the next few days, customers will be able to purchase joint Emirates-JetBlue itineraries via the GDS, online travel agencies, and by calling Emirates reservations.
Emirates is one the world’s largest international carriers, flying to 108 cities around the world with a fleet of wide-bodied aircraft equipped with industry-leading comforts in the air.
In turn, JetBlue is the leading airline at JFK Airport, where it offers premium low-fare service to dozens of cities throughout the Americas and carries more travellers than any other airline.
Under today’s agreement, travellers will be able to book a single combined ticket for JetBlue and Emirates-operated flights and enjoy one-stop check-in and baggage transfer between the airlines.
“We are pleased to partner with Emirates as we continue to expand JetBlue’s global reach,” said Scott Resnick, the airline’s director of airline partnerships.
“With its impressive network spanning six continents, its respected and recognized brand, and its reputation for premium customer service, Emirates is a perfect fit for JetBlue’s growing portfolio of international partners.”
In addition to the appeal of its home of Dubai, the commercial and tourism hub of the United Arab Emirates and the Gulf region, Emirates will offer JetBlue customers from cities such as Boston, Chicago, Orlando, and Washington new access to an impressive array of onward destinations.
“Our new partnership with JetBlue will enable customers from across the United States to connect quickly and easily to Emirates’ extensive network of worldwide destinations,” said Nigel Page, senior vice president of commercial operations for Americas and Africa.
“With both Emirates and JetBlue recognized for their best-in-class services, this is a natural partnership which will enable air travellers within the Americas to look forward to more choice, convenience, value and comfort than ever before.”
