South African Airways (SAA) and JetBlue Airways have announced an expansion of their interline partnership, with South African Airways now offering codeshare services on JetBlue flights from 3 March.
The codeshare service will be available with SAA flight numbers on JetBlue flights to 20 cities served by the airline in the US, connecting through either New York JFK or Washington Dulles airports and SAA’s Johannesburg hub, where passengers can access connections to more than 45 cities throughout South Africa and Southern Africa.
"Customer response to the interline service between South African Airways and JetBlue has been overwhelmingly positive on both sides of the Atlantic. They appreciate the ease with which they can connect between these two award-winning airlines," remarked Marc Cavaliere, executive vice-president, North America, for South African Airways. "This codeshare agreement simply builds on an already popular programme, and further enhances the service offering for customers wishing to travel between the US and Southern Africa."
