UK national carrier British Airways has signed a codeshare agreement with US budget airline Jetblue, which will open up a host of new destinations to the airline.
As it stands the agreement currently covers both carriers flights from Orlando, Washington, JFK and Boston as well as 18 BA transatlantic services per day including the New York to Paris flight.
“JetBlue is a well-respected, modern airline and we are delighted to be working with the carrier to offer our customers smooth connections to an even greater choice of destinations in the US,” said Steve Ronald, BA’s head of alliances.
The deal isn’t the first with a low budget airline however, explained a BA spokeswoman:
“It depends how you define budget,” she explained, adding that oneworld alliance member Air Berlin could be defined as such. “We have codeshare agreements with Westjet and S7 (a Russian carrier) is a oneworld member.”
