Emirates widens US services with JetBlue deal
Emirates customers travelling to America will soon enjoy seamless connections to a dozen US cities, after the airline announced the start of a one-way codeshare with JetBlue.
The codeshare will further strengthen the relationship between Emirates and JetBlue, the Dubai airline said in a statement.
The two airlines have been interline partners since 2010, enabling customers to enjoy the convenience of a single combined ticket for Emirates and JetBlue-operated flights, plus other benefits including one-stop check-in and baggage transfer, it said.
Emirates customers can connect to JetBlue services at New York's JFK Airport. As a one-way codeshare, an Emirates' flight number will be placed on JetBlue services to the following cities: Boston, Burlington, Buffalo, Charlotte, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Orlando, Portland, Maine, Raleigh/Durham, Tampa and Washington Dulles.
Emirates' flights to the US now serve six gateways, with daily services to Dallas/Fort Worth and Seattle-Tacoma having been launched in February and March this year respectively. The airline will start non-stop daily flights to its seventh US destination Washington, DC on 12 September.
