JetBlue Airways and LOT Polish Airlines have formed a new interline partnership to allow their customers to book connections seamlessly through JetBlue’s home at New York JFK airport and LOT’s hub at Warsaw Chopin airport.
The agreement offers travellers many new connections between JetBlue’s network in North America and LOT’s network throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
LOT offers nonstop service from New York to its hub in Warsaw, where customers can connect to more than 45 destinations across Poland, Europe and the Middle East. Some of the most popular destinations include Bucharest, Budapest, Belgrade, Kiev, Lviv, Odessa, Riga, Saint Petersburg, Sofia, Tallinn and Vilnius.
In New York, JetBlue offers easy connections between LOT-operated transatlantic flights and many cities along the US east coast including Buffalo, Charlotte, Raleigh/Durham, New York, Pittsburgh, as well as many cities in Florida.
“We are looking forward to establishing co-operation with JetBlue. LOT has been present in the American market for many years which, from our perspective, offers great development potential,” explained Marcin Pirog, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines. “Thanks to the agreement with JetBlue, we are able to offer our passengers a broader choice of connections at the highest standard of service.”
“JetBlue and LOT Polish Airlines have much in common,” remarked Scott Laurence, JetBlue’s vice-president of network planning and partnerships. “The outstanding customer service and revitalised brands continue to surprise customers all over the world and will most definitely do so for LOT and JetBlue connecting customers as they expand their reach into Europe and the Americas.”
