JetBlue Airways and Qatar Airways have announced a one-way codeshare agreement to connect the carriers’ networks via New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport, subject to receipt of government approval.
The two airlines have been interline partners since 2011, enabling customers to enjoy the convenience of a single combined ticket for Qatar and JetBlue-operated flights, plus other benefits including one-stop check-in and baggage transfer.
Tickets featuring a Qatar Airways flight number will soon be available for sale for JetBlue-operated connections in 26 markets between New York/JFK and Washington Dulles.
“We are pleased to deepen our successful relationship with Qatar Airways through this new codeshare at JFK and Dulles, providing customers more access to both networks,” said Dave Barger, JetBlue president.
“Qatar has been a great partner for JetBlue, serving our customers well with their outstanding product and service.”
JetBlue customers can avail themselves of Qatar Airways’ connecting service to destinations across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific regions, including 12 cities in India and a number of destinations including Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Kuwait, Riyadh, Islamabad, Nairobi and Dar es Salaam.
JetBlue is a top domestic airline at JFK, with more than 150 daily departures to dozens of major US cities including Boston, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Orlando, San Francisco, and San Juan, Puerto Rico, from its home at the modern Terminal 5.
