JetBlue Airways and Singapore Airlines are launching a new interline agreement at New York JFK and Newark airports to offer customers new travel options from JetBlue destinations in the United States to Europe, Singapore and beyond.
Singapore Airlines offers all-business class service each day from Newark to its hub at Changi International Airport in Singapore – the world’s longest nonstop commercial flight – with connections throughout Southeast Asia. In addition, the airline also flies daily from New York JFK to Singapore via Frankfurt.
Beginning January 16, Singapore Airlines will deploy the Airbus A380 super-jumbo on its daily service to New York JFK, JetBlue Airways’ main base.
At Singapore Changi International Airport, customers have access to an extensive network of flight connections to destinations including Bali, Bangkok, Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City, Kuala Lumpur, and Manila, among many others. Singapore Airlines operates a passenger-aircraft fleet of more than 100 aircraft and its network, including Singapore Airlines Cargo and SilkAir destinations, covers a total of 103 cities in 39 countries.
JetBlue Airways is the largest domestic airline at New York JFK, offering more than 150 daily flights. It offers non-stop service to dozens of destinations including Boston, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C and from Newark to Boston, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale.
Through this partnership, customers will now be able to book a single combined ticket for JetBlue and Singapore Airlines-operated flights with one stop check-in and baggage transfer between the two airlines. Customers may purchase JetBlue-Singapore Airlines travel via travel agents, online, or through Singapore Airlines’ reservations call center.
In October 2007, Singapore Airlines, a member of the Star Alliance, made aviation history as the first carrier to operate the world’s largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380.
JetBlue Airways says it is America’s first and only airline to offer its own Customer Bill of Rights, with meaningful and specific compensation for customers inconvenienced by service disruptions within JetBlue’s control. Visit www.jetblue.com/promise for details.
New York-based JetBlue serves 70 cities with 700 daily flights and plans to introduce service to Dallas/Fort Worth in May 2012.
