Seaborne Airlines and JetBlue Airways are expanding upon their interline agreement which has been in place since 2013 with a new codeshare agreement aimed at improving connectivity in the Caribbean.
JetBlue and Seaborne offer a combined 50 daily flights that connect 22 destinations. Seaborne will give the JetBlue network multiple new destinations including Anguilla, Dominica, Guadaloupe, Martinique, Nevis, St Kitts, and Tortola as well as an expanded presence throughout the United States Virgin Islands and the Dominican Republic.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with JetBlue. Providing improved connectivity in our common hub of San Juan will add tremendous value to Caribbean residents, visitors, and businesses,” explained president and CEO of Seaborne Airlines, Gary Foss.
“Our codeshare agreement with Seaborne makes travelling to the Caribbean easier than ever, and that's the way a beach vacation or family visit should feel,” added Scott Laurence, SVP airline planning, JetBlue. “Between JetBlue's leading position as San Juan's largest and most customer friendly airline, and Seaborne's extended local reach, this is a win–win partnership for customers and tourism.”
Along with JetBlue, Seaborne operates as a codeshare partner of American Airlines and Air Europa. The carrier also holds interline connecting agreements with Delta Airlines and United.
