JetBlue and Seaborne Airlines have begun selling flights under a new codeshare agreement that will offer customers increased travel options and new destinations around the Caribbean.
Customers flying on both airlines will enjoy the benefit of traveling on a single ticket that allows for one-stop check-in, baggage transfer to the final destination, and “conveniently timed” connections in San Juan.
“This latest codeshare agreement combines Seaborne Airlines’ experience serving exciting Caribbean destinations with JetBlue’s established footing as an award-winning carrier to the region,” said Scott Laurence, senior vice president, airline planning at JetBlue.
So far, JetBlue has placed its ‘B6’ designator code on the following Seaborne Airlines routes: Anguilla, Tortola, Dominica, Nevis, St Kitts, St Maarten, St Thomas, and St Croix.
Following the receipt of pending government approvals, JetBlue will also place the code on the remainder of the Seaborne Airline network, which includes Antigua, Fort-de-France, Point-a-Pitre, Punta Cana, and Santo Domingo.
“The entire Seaborne Airlines team is excited to begin our codeshare relationship with JetBlue,” said Gary Foss, President and CEO of Seaborne Airlines. “I’m confident that our customers, Caribbean residents, and tourism to our region will all benefit as a result of this agreement.”
