JetBlue to Codeshare with JAL and Emirates

JetBlue Feed via New York JFK, LAX, and Boston

JetBlue has been busy entering into codeshare agreements with international carriers as a result of its T5 Live hub at New York Kennedy (JFK) and its substantial presence at Boston Logan International (BOS).  As a low cost operation which isn’t a member of any alliance, JetBlue has been able to enter into some unique codeshare agreements.

Upon arrival into JFK, the terminal hopping AirTrain allows for easy connections between terminals.

JetBlue has branded itself as, “New York’s Hometown Airline(tm)”, but with Boston (BOS), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Los Angeles (LAX), and Orlando (MCO) as focus cities, they’re a perfect candidate for codeshare agreements with international carriers.

The airline already has codeshare agreements in place with Singapore Airlines and more recently, LOT Polish Airlines.

Japan Airlines (JAL) and JetBlue Codeshare


First up, Japan Airlines (JAL) operates non-stop flights to Tokyo-Narita (NRT) from New York Kennedy Airport (JFK) and will soon become an operator of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner from Boston’s Logan Airport.

The codeshare agreement is an expansion upon an interline partnership between the carriers’ two networks in Tokyo and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) as well as Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS).  Customers looking to make a reservation, which will feature JAL’s code on JetBlue-operated flights, can book flights now for travel on or after April 22, 2012.

The start of the new agreement on April 22 coincides with JAL’s new flight between Boston and Tokyo’s Narita International Airport using the fuel-efficient Boeing 787 Dreamliner.  This flight will be the only nonstop from New England to Asia.

Japan Airlines offers daily nonstop service to Tokyo-Narita (NRT) from JFK, and customers may also continue to book tickets for combined interline travel on JetBlue and Japan Airlines through Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), where travelers may connect onward to most major cities in Asia including:

  • Bangkok (BKK)
  • Beijing (PEK)
  • Hong Kong (HKG)
  • Kuala Lumpur (KUL)
  • Singapore (SIN)
  • Seoul Incheon (ICN)
  • Shanghai Pudong (PVG)
  • Taipei Taiwan (TPE)


Customers may connect onward to 13 US destinations from Boston and a large variety of US destinations from New York.

Next up is Dubai-based Emirates which operates two daily flights from New York Kennedy (JFK) to their dazzling hub at Dubai International Airport (DXB).   The codeshare agreement with Emirates connects to JetBlue’s network at New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport.

The two airlines have been interline partners since 2010, enabling customers to enjoy the convenience of a single combined ticket for Emirates and JetBlue-operated flights, plus other benefits including one-stop check-in and baggage transfer.

Tickets featuring an Emirates flight number will soon be available for sale for JetBlue-operated connections between New York/JFK and the following U.S. destinations:

  • Boston (BOS)
  • Burlington, Vermont (BTV)
  • Buffalo, New York (BUF)
  • Charlotte, North Carolina (CLT)
  • Chicago O’Hare (ORD)
  • Fort Lauderdale, Florida (FLL)
  • Jacksonville, Florida (JAX)
  • Orlando, Florida (MCO)
  • Portland, Maine (PWM)
  • Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina (RDU)
  • Tampa, Florida (TPA)
  • Washington/Dulles (IAD)


Emirates operates two flights daily between its Dubai Hub (DXB) and New York (JFK), with one operation featuring the flagship of Airbus, the mammoth Airbus A380 (pictured above).  The other flight operates using Emirates’ long-range Boeing 777-300ER — both the A380 and Boeing 777 service offer travelers fine dining, personalized service and multi award-winning entertainment options.

Emirates’ network now reaches 123 cities across the globe, giving travelers in the United States access not only to the carrier’s home of Dubai, the commercial and tourism hub of the United Arab Emirates and the Gulf region, but also to cities across Africa, India, and throughout Asia Pacific.

JetBlue operates 172 Airbus A320 family and Embraer-190 aircraft from its 26 gates at JFK Terminal 5.  Emirates operates next-door at Terminal 4, providing for easy connections.
