Silver Airways and JetBlue Airways have expanded their interline agreement, with Silver Airways becoming a partner in JetBlue’s TrueBlue frequent-flyer program.
The addition of regional carrier Silver Airways as a TrueBlue frequent-flyer partner allows travelers the opportunity to earn TrueBlue points on Silver’s extensive network of routes throughout Florida and the Bahamas.
In addition, travelers can now also book connecting flights between Silver Airways and JetBlue via the larger airline’s website, www.jetblue.com.
Based at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport in Florida, Silver Airways boasts that it offers flights between more Florida cities than any other airline and more flights between Florida and the Bahamas than any other U.S. airline.
“Silver Airways’ route network complements JetBlue’s network, providing our customers with greater access to destinations in Florida and the Bahamas, all while earning TrueBlue points,” says Robin Hayes, JetBlue Airways’ president.
JetBlue Airways and Silver Airways launched their interline partnership in December 2013, allowing travelers to connect easily between the carriers’ networks at Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa and Fort Myers.
According to Silver Airways, the interline agreement is bringing many new Florida and Bahamas destinations within reach for JetBlue’s customers. These destinations include Key West, Pensacola, Tallahassee, Gainesville, Bimini, Grand Bahama (Freeport), the Eleutheras (Governor’s Harbour and North Eleuthera), the Abacos (Marsh Harbour and Treasure Cay), and Great Exuma (George Town).
Meanwhile, travelers from Silver’s destinations in Florida have easy interline access to JetBlue’s many destinations throughout the U.S., as well as cities throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
Since launching its own silverairways.com website and stand-alone Sabre reservation system less than a year ago, Silver Airways has developed its portfolio of airline interline partnerships and now has such agreements in place with seven carriers.
Silver now has interline agreements with JetBlue, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, US Airways, Bahamasair, Hahn Air, and All Nippon Airways. Additionally, Silver Airways has a long-standing codeshare and frequent flyer partnership with United Airlines, dating from the regional carrier’s former existence as Gulfstream International Airlines.
