New York’s hometown airline, JetBlue Airways, and British Airways have announced an interline agreement.

The deal will connect the carriers’ networks at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport, Orlando International Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport, creating new possibilities for travellers.

This marks the first partnership between JetBlue and British Airways, and the 25th airline agreement for JetBlue.

The carriers initially plan to interline on 18 daily transatlantic British Airways flights, more than 50 US routes on the JetBlue network and more than 100 British Airways routes beyond London.

British Airways’ intercontinental routes that are part of the interline agreement include Boston-London Heathrow, New York/JFK-London City Airport, New York/JFK- London Heathrow, New York/JFK-Paris Orly, Orlando-London Gatwick and Washington/Dulles-London Heathrow.

Tickets can be purchased through British Airways.

Customers will be able to enjoy access to a variety of British Airways destinations beyond London, including Europe, Africa, the Middle East and India, as well as non-stop access to Paris Orly Airport from New York.

“We are proud to partner with British Airways, one of Europe’s premier airlines.

“This partnership provides our customers with even more possibilities to travel smoothly across Europe and other destinations in BA’s extensive route network,” said Scott Laurence, JetBlue’s vice president of network planning and partnerships.

“With 18 daily British Airways flights to our key East Coast gateways, their customers will now be able to enjoy the award-winning JetBlue experience to more than 50 US destinations.”
