JetBlue and Cathay Pacific to interlineJuly 24, 2012
JetBlue Airways and Cathay Pacific Airways have entered into an interline agreement that will link each other's networks and bring new flight options to travellers between Asia-Pacific and the Americas.
Through the arrangement, which comes into effect later in the North American summer, JetBlue and Cathay plan to offer the ease of single-ticket travel and one-stop baggage check-in for travellers transferring between the airlines at New York JFK and Los Angeles International (LAX).
JetBlue is the largest domestic airline at JFK, where Cathay Pacific offers four daily flights to Hong Kong. At LAX, Cathay Pacific offers as many as three daily flights to Hong Kong that seamlessly connect to JetBlue's transcontinental services to the US northeast and Florida.
"JetBlue and Cathay Pacific share a similar philosophy of giving travellers an experience to remember," explained Scott Resnick, JetBlue's director of airline partnerships. "We are proud to partner with an airline of Cathay Pacific's calibre to give our customers new options for travel throughout Asia."
