Hawaiian Airlines expands JetBlue deal

New York’s JetBlue Airways and Hawaii’s flag carrier, Hawaiian Airlines, have expanded their partnership.

Members of both carriers’ frequent flyer programs will soon be able to earn and redeem loyalty points or miles for travel on either airline.

Travellers will also find more convenient connections between points throughout the East Coast and points throughout Hawaii with the signing of a new codeshare agreement.

Both agreements will be in effect on June 5th 2012, when Hawaiian launches the only non-stop service between New York City and Hawaii with daily wide body flights between JetBlue’s Terminal 5 at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York City and Honolulu International Airport (HNL).

“Starting next month, Hawaiian will bring Hawaii to New York, and this expansion of our partnership with JetBlue will make travel between the East Coast and Hawaii easier than ever,” said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer.
