JetBlue Airways and Qatar Airways have signed a one-way codeshare agreement to connect the carriers’ networks via New York JFK and Washington Dulles International Airport, subject to receipt of government approval.
The two airlines have been interline partners since 2011, enabling customers to travel on a single combined ticket for Qatar Airways and JetBlue Airways-operated flights and have access to other services including one-stop check-in and baggage transfer.
Assuming the two airlines receive government approval for their codeshare agreement, tickets featuring a Qatar Airways flight number will soon be available for sale for JetBlue-operated connections in 26 markets between New York JFK and Washington Dulles International Airport.
Among the U.S markets included in the on-eway codeshare agreement are Buffalo, New York (BUF); Charlotte, North Carolina (CLT); Denver, Colorado (DEN); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (FLL); Fort Myers, Florida (RSW); Jacksonville, Florida (JAX); Long Beach, California (LGB); New Orleans, Louisiana (MSY); Palm Beach, Florida, (PBI); Phoenix, Arizona (PHX); Portland, Oregon (PDX); Salt Lake City, Utah (SLC); and Syracuse, New York (SYR).
JetBlue customers can avail themselves of Qatar Airways’ connecting service to destinations throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific regions, including 12 cities in India and other destinations including Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Kuwait, Riyadh, Islamabad, Nairobi and Dar es Salaam.
JetBlue offers more than 150 daily departures from New York JFK to dozens of major U.S. cities including Boston, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Orlando, San Francisco, and San Juan, Puerto Rico, from its home at the modern Terminal 5.
At Washington Dulles International Airport, the airline offers service to Boston, New York, and Long Beach and Oakland in California.
