JetBlue and American Airlines are partnering up in a deal that will benefit both companies and travelers alike.
Travel and Leisure ~ ” The partnership, announced in a press release Thursday, will allow each airline to sell seats on the other’s flights and share frequent-flier benefits. It will particularly benefit passengers by increasing international connectivity in New York and Boston.
Passengers will be able to book a single ticket with either airline, only checking in once and enjoying a seamless connection between flights. The new partnership will also increase the flight options American is able to offer. By allowing JetBlue to operate domestic flights, American can focus on adding new long-haul markets in Europe, Africa, India, and South America.
JetBlue will not be joining the Oneworld alliance, which includes American and 12 other major international airlines like British Airways, Cathay Pacific, and Qantas. However, the airline still plans to independently launch and operate its transatlantic service to London in 2021.
Implementation of the partnership is contingent upon government review. ” ~ Travel and Leisure
