JetBlue Airways and Korean Air have announced an interline partnership which allows travellers to conveniently book connections between JetBlue’s network in The Americas and Korean’s network throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
Customers can book tickets for combined travel on JetBlue and Korean Air through New York JFK, Washington Dulles and Los Angeles International (LAX) airports. Korean Air offers daily nonstop service from New York, Washington and Los Angeles to the carrier’s hub at Seoul’s Incheon International Airport (ICN), where travellers can connect onward to 12 Korean cities, more than two dozen Chinese cities, and most major cities in the Asia-Pacific including Bangkok, Beijing, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Manila, Singapore, Shanghai, Tokyo and Taipei.
In New York, JetBlue offers connections between Korean Air-operated flights and cities along the East Coast including Buffalo/Niagara Falls, NY; Charlotte and Raleigh, NC; Pittsburgh, PA; and multiple destinations in Florida. From Los Angeles, JetBlue offers connecting service to Boston, New York (JFK), and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. From Washington Dulles, the carrier connects to destinations on the West Coast and throughout the northeast United States.
“JetBlue is looking forward to this partnership, which will continue to expand connections across Asia to our customers,” commented Bryan Kapeckas, JetBlue’s manager of airline partnerships. “Korean Air is also the first airline partner that is a Sky Team member, further expanding on JetBlue’s open architecture model, which benefits customers by offering diverse options with our many airline partners.”
