JetBlue and Silver Airways, which have been interline partners since 2013, have now set up a codeshare agreement allowing Silver Airways passengers to connect to JetBlue flights through Orlando and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood on a single ticket with seamless baggage transfers.

“Whether you're originating in Florida, or you're on your way there, our codeshare with Silver Airways gives customers an easy way to book travel and earn TrueBlue points across our route networks,” stated Scott Laurence, SVP airline planning, JetBlue. “With this codeshare, we can help our customers get to destinations like Key West and Pensacola more easily, while offering customers in Silver Airways cities connections to incredible JetBlue destinations.”
“We are delighted to expand our partnership with JetBlue to a full codeshare,” added Silver Airways CEO Sami Teittinen. “As Florida's largest intrastate airline, we are committed to providing a valuable and critical travel link for Florida visitors and residents. This codeshare partnership will further strengthen both of our networks, providing business and leisure customers with even more travel options to and within Florida and The Bahamas."
Later this year, the partnership will expand to include 13 Silver Airways routes from Florida to The Bahamas, subject to receipt of regulatory approvals. This marks JetBlue's thirteenth announced codeshare agreement.
