JAL Strengthens US East Coast Network with New JetBlue Airways Codeshare Agreement

 

TOKYO, April 17, 2012: Japan Airlines (JAL) and JetBlue Airways have reached a codeshare agreement that will place “JL” flight indicators on select JetBlue-operated flights that connect New York and Boston with 21 destinations in the US from April 22, 2012. Sales and reservations begin from April 18, 2012.

 

JetBlue is a value airline in the US known for its quality in customer service, featuring leather seats, one of the widest seat pitches in economy class, free in-flight entertainment at every seatback, and unlimited snacks and drinks. Under the new codeshare agreement, customers can more easily connect between JAL’s daily Tokyo, Narita service and US domestic cities such as New Orleans, LA; Portland, ME; Rochester and Syracuse, NY; and Washington, DC (Dulles), at JetBlue’s home base at John F. Kennedy in New York.

 

Via Boston Logan International Airport - JetBlue’s focus city and where it is the largest airline, the codeshare arrangement will allow customers to smoothly transfer between JAL’s latest nonstop flights to and from Tokyo, Narita, and such US destinations as Buffalo, NY; Baltimore, MD; Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa and West Palm Beach, FL.

 

The start of the new codeshare flights will coincide with JAL’s launch of the brand new Tokyo (Narita) = Boston route using the super-efficient Boeing 787 Dreamliner on April 22. This first ever nonstop service between New England and Asia is a transpacific joint business route with oneworld alliance partner American Airlines, with whom JAL also has an extensive codeshare agreement. Together with American and JetBlue, JAL will be able to deliver to customers greater conveniences with a more comprehensive network in the east coast of the US.
