JetBlue Airways and Emirates have announced the launch of an interline agreement to offer travellers seamless worldwide connections via New York John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport.
Customers will be able to purchase joint Emirates–JetBlue itineraries via the GDS, online travel agencies, and by calling Emirates reservations.
From JFK, Emirates offers two daily nonstop flights to its global hub at Dubai International Airport – including service aboard its flagship A380 and its ultra long range 777-300ER.
In addition to the appeal of Dubai, Emirates will offer JetBlue customers from cities such as Boston, Chicago, Orlando, and Washington new access to an array of onward destinations. "We are pleased to partner with Emirates as we continue to expand JetBlue’s global reach," remarked Scott Resnick, the airline’s director of airline partnerships. "With its impressive network spanning six continents, its respected and recognised brand, and its reputation for premium customer service, Emirates is a perfect fit for JetBlue’s growing portfolio of international partners."
