On Monday, JetBlue Airways and Singapore Airlines announced the launch of a new interline agreement that will offer customers a wealth of new options from JetBlue destinations in the United States to Europe, Singapore, and beyond.
Singapore Airlines, one of the world's most respected and award-winning carriers, will begin deploying the A380 superjumbo from Singapore to JetBlue's home at New York's John F. Kennedy International (JFK) on Jan. 16, 2012.
Once at Singapore Changi Airport, JetBlue customers will have access to an extensive network of flight connections to destinations like Bangkok, Bali, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh City, and Manila. In total, Singapore Airlines operates a fleet of over 100 aircraft and covers a total of 103 cities in 39 countries.
Singapore Airlines is one the world's leading airlines, and a pioneer in many ways, Scott Resnick, JetBlue's director of airline partnerships, said in a statement. We're happy to have our customers connect seamlessly on to their comfortable flights to Europe and Asia Pacific, where everything from the entertainment to the in-flight meals is carefully selected, providing a great complement to JetBlue's award-winning service.
C.W. Foo, Regional Vice President - Americas for Singapore Airlines, echoed that sentiment.
JetBlue has for years been a passenger favorite for travel within the region, Foo said. This new partnership provides a seamless link for passengers in dozens of interior U.S. points to connect to our unique brand of Asian hospitality when traveling abroad.
JetBlue is the largest domestic airline at New York's JFK, with connections to dozens of American cities like Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.
The new partnership will allow customers to book a single combined ticket for JetBlue and Singapore Airlines-operated flights with one stop check-in and baggage transfer between the two airlines.
