American Airlines and Jetblue Airways Implement Commercial Agreement, Announce Frequent Flyer Relationship
Beginning tomorrow, customers will be able to book convenient, interline service in non-overlapping markets from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Boston’s Logan Airport (BOS) through travel agencies, most major North American online travel agency websites, American Airlines ticket counters, or by calling American Airlines Reservations at 800-433-7300.
Under the cooperative agreement, customers will be able to easily connect between 14 of American’s international destinations departing from JFK and Boston, including Barcelona, Spain; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and Tokyo and 18 JetBlue domestic markets, including Portland, Maine; Rochester, N.Y.; or Richmond, Va. None of the routes on which the airlines will cooperate overlap current flights flown by the other. A full list of the cities for each airline is available in the news release.
American and JetBlue also announced today that they have agreed to begin a frequent flyer relationship later this year. Members of American’s AAdvantage® program and JetBlue’s TrueBlue® customer loyalty program will be able to earn AAdvantage miles or TrueBlue points, respectively, when they fly only on the cooperative interline routes listed below.
As announced previously, on Nov. 1, American will transfer eight slot pairs at Ronald Reagan National Airport and one slot pair at White Plains, N.Y., to JetBlue, while JetBlue will transfer 12 slot pairs at JFK to American.
