Emi­rates in Code­share with Jetblue

Enterprise - - Contents -

Emi­rates’ cus­tomers trav­el­ling to the United States will soon en­joy seam­less con­nec­tions to a dozen U.S. cities, as Emi­rates now of­fers a oneway code­share with JetBlue.

The code­share will fur­ther strengthen the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Emi­rates and JetBlue. 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.

“Emi­rates’ net­work within the United States will soon ex­tend to al­most 20 cities through our part­ner JetBlue, mak­ing fly­ing to the U.S. from the Gulf, Mid­dle East, Africa, the In­dian Sub­con­ti­nent and the Far East smoother and more con­ve­nient than ever be­fore,” said Thierry Anti­nori, Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent of Pas­sen­ger Sales World­wide. “JetBlue shares our pas­sion for in­no­va­tion and best-in­class ser­vices, and we look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to grow the re­la­tion­ship as we seek new ways to build our pres­ence within the United States,” Anti­nori added.

“We are pleased to ex­pand upon our suc­cess­ful re­la­tion­ship with Emi­rates through this new code­share at JFK, where JetBlue is the num­ber one air­line,” said Scott Lau­rence, JetBlue’s Vice Pres­i­dent, Net­work Plan­ning and Part­ner­ships. “Emi­rates has been a ter­rific travel part­ner for JetBlue, af­ford­ing our cus­tomers easy ac­cess to all cor­ners of the globe in com­fort and style.”

Emi­rates’ cus­tomers can con­nect to JetBlue ser­vices at New York’s JFK Air­port. As a one-way code­share, an Emi­rates’ flight num­ber will be placed on JetBlue ser­vices to the fol­low­ing cities: Bos­ton (BOS), Burling­ton (BTV), Buf­falo (BUF), Char­lotte (CLT), Chicago (ORD), Fort Laud­erdale (FLL), Jack­sonville (JAX), Or­lando (MCO), Port­land, Maine (PWM), Raleigh/Durham (RDU), Tampa (TPA) and Washington Dulles (IAD).

At JFK Air­port, Emi­rates op­er­ates from Ter­mi­nal 4 while JetBlue op­er­ates from the ad­ja­cent, 26-gate Ter­mi­nal 5, al­low­ing for easy con­nec­tions be­tween flights. In ad­di­tion, the Quick Con­nect ser­vice avail­able at JFK makes trans­fers even more has­sle-free. Avail­able to all cus­tomers with a con­firmed on­ward flight de­part­ing within three hours of their Emi­rates’ flight ar­rival, Quick Con­nect en­ables cus­tomers to ad­vance to the head of a spe­cially des­ig­nated pas­sen­ger se­cu­rity check­point lane at their con­nect­ing ter­mi­nals. The ser­vice also ex­tends to bag­gage, with Emi­rates ar­rang­ing the trans­fer of bag­gage on to the con­nect­ing flights.

Emi­rates cur­rently of­fers two daily non-stop flights to JFK – in­clud­ing ser­vice aboard its flag­ship Air­bus A380 and its ul­tra-long range Boe­ing 777300ER.

Win­ner of over 500 in­ter­na­tional awards, Emi­rates’ unique ser­vice of­fer­ing in­cludes com­pli­men­tary chauf­feur-driven air­port trans­fers for pre­mium cus­tomers, privacy suites in First Air­port was named one of the Top Air­port Lounges in North Amer­ica by From­mer’s Travel Guides in 2011. The lounge, which is avail­able to First Class and Busi­ness Class cus­tomers as well as Sky­wards Gold mem­bers, of­fers a spa­cious and lux­u­ri­ous seat­ing area, a se­lec­tion of fine food and bev­er­ages to suit any palate, shower fa­cil­i­ties, com­pli­men­tary mas­sages and a fully-equipped Busi­ness Cen­tre with in­de­pen­dent work sta­tions and com­pli­men­tary broad­band and wire­less in­ter­net ac­cess.

JetBlue is the lead­ing car­rier at JFK Air­port, where it of­fers pre­mium, low-fare ser­vice to dozens of cities through­out the Amer­i­cas. Known for its award-win­ning cus­tomer ser­vice, JetBlue will of­fer trans­fer cus­tomers from Emi­rates’ net­work of global desti­na­tions a pre­mium ex­pe­ri­ence that in­cludes all-leather seat­ing, un­lim­ited free snacks and drinks, plus the most legroom in econ­omy class (based on av­er­age fleet-wide seat pitch) and the most free live en­ter­tain­ment of any U.S. air­line.

Emi­rates’ net­work now en­com­passes 123 cities glob­ally, served by a fleet of 171 air­craft which are among the youngest in the skies. Emi­rates’ flights to the U.S. now serve six gate­ways, with daily ser­vices to Dal­las/Fort Worth (DFW) and Seat­tle-Ta­coma (SEA), hav­ing launched in Fe­bru­ary and March this year. The air­line will start non-stop daily flights to its sev­enth U.S. des­ti­na­tion Washington, DC on Septem­ber 12, 2012.
