JetBlue Airways and Seaborne Airlines have finalized terms to launch a codeshare relationship, the two sides announced.

The follows an existing interline agreement signed in 2013.

“The codeshare will help facilitate improved connectivity between two of the top airlines in the Caribbean,” Seaborne said.

“We are excited to expand our partnership with JetBlue.  Providing improved connectivity in our common hub of San Juan will add tremendous value to Caribbean residents, visitors, and businesses,” said Seaborne President and CEO Gary Foss. “We are honored that JetBlue, known for outstanding customer service, would recognize the same that Seaborne employees are providing throughout the Caribbean.”

The agreement means Seaborne will expand the JetBlue network to destinations like Martinique, St Kitts, Nevis and Tortola, among others.

“Our codeshare agreement with Seaborne makes traveling to the Caribbean easier than ever, and that’s the way a beach vacation or family visit should feel,” said Scott Laurence, senior vice president for airline planning at JetBlue. “Between JetBlue’s leading position as San Juan’s largest and most customer friendly airline, and Seaborne’s extended local reach, this is a win-win partnership for customers and tourism.”

Seaborne is also a codeshare partner of American Airlines and Spain’s Air Europa.

The company and its partners offer service to 32 destinations in the Americas and Europe from San Juan.

“The Puerto Rico Tourism Company welcomes this new partnership that supports and strengthens our efforts to increase air access to the Island. This new codeshare marketing relationship between Jet Blue and Seaborne facilitates the entrance of more visitors and positively impacts the economic development in the Island,” said Ingrid Rivera Rocafort, executive director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, in a statement.
