jetBlue and JAL signed a codeshare agreement, expanding their current interline relationship, connecting their networks in Tokyo and JFK as well as Boston. The expanded agreement, which comes into effect April 22, coincides with JAL’s new nonstop service from Boston to Tokyo Narita using the 787.
“In addition to our New York and Los Angeles offerings, customers in New England can now conveniently connect in Boston, where we are the largest airline, for direct service to Asia just in time for summer,” explains Scott Laurence, jetBlue’s VP network planning and partnerships. “Japan Airline’s partnership with JetBlue will introduce a new stream of travelers to our airline’s brand, our people, and our award-winning service.”
From Boston, JAL customers can connect to Tokyo from thirteen U.S. destinations including Buffalo, N.Y.; Baltimore, MD; Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa and West Palm Beach, Fla.; Pittsburgh; Raleigh/Durham, N.C.; Richmond, Va.; and Washington, D.C.
