Award winning low-cost US carrier JetBlue is planning to enter into two-way code-share agreements for the first time.
The airline is the largest domestic operator at New York’s JFK Airport, with over half of its flights originating there. Two-way code-shares will allow JetBlue to capitalize on its extensive JFK operations through partnerships with a few of the over 60 international carriers operating from JFK as well as larger US airlines.
JetBlue in 2013, had interline agreements with 22 carriers including the latest one signed with South Korean airline Asiana. The airline also has one-way code-share deals, in which JetBlue’s partner airline can issue tickets with connecting flights on JetBlue, with six carriers – Air China, Lufthansa, Emirates, South African Airways, Hawaiian Airlines and Japan Airlines.
A two-way code-share agreement will enable passengers to book a flight with JetBlue that includes flights on another airline.
