Emirates, one of the world's largest international airlines, has announced the expansion of its one-way codeshare agreement with JetBlue Airways, New York’s Hometown Airline™.
As part of the expansion, tickets featuring an Emirates flight number are now available for sale for JetBlue-operated connections between New York/JFK and the following U.S. destinations: Austin, Texas (AUS); Denver, Colorado (DEN); Long Beach, California (LGB); West Palm Beach, Florida (PBI); Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PIT); Rochester, New York (ROC); Fort Myers, Florida (RSW); Sarasota-Bradenton, Florida (SRQ); San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU); and Syracuse, New York (SYR).

“Emirates is proud to further expand its successful partnership with JetBlue by adding even more destinations to our codeshare agreement. Coupled with our second daily A380 service from New York’s JFK beginning in January, 2013, Emirates looks forward to welcoming JetBlue customers with our award-winning luxurious service and superb onboard product, as they fly to destinations across the Far East, Middle East, Africa, Southeast Asia and the Indian Subcontinent.” said Jim Baxter, Emirates’ Vice President – USA, Caribbean and Central America.
Following the launch of a joint frequent flyer partnership in July, 2012, Emirates' Skywards members are also now able to earn Skywards Miles on JetBlue’s network throughout America, while members of JetBlue’s customer loyalty program TrueBlue can earn TrueBlue points across Emirates' network of more than 120 destinations worldwide. The partner airlines plan to introduce a redemption agreement in February, 2013.
To celebrate the partnership, Skywards is currently offering its more than 7 million members the chance to earn double Skywards Miles for travel on JetBlue now through Sept. 30, 2012. Skywards members can visit skywards.com to register for the offer.
