Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue agree to expanded codeshare agreement

Hawaiian Airlines and JetBlue have announced they have signed an expanded codeshare agreement that allows travelers from dozens of cities to connect to the Hawaiian Islands via Boston´s Logan International Airport (BOS) starting in April, the company said.

Boston-area JetBlue customers can now purchase tickets on Hawaiian Airlines´ nonstop flight to Honolulu´s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) with JetBlue´s B6 code and earn TrueBlue points when they fly.

Hawaiian Airlines will begin its five-day-a-week service to Boston on April 4. Boston is the largest US market without nonstop service to Hawai´i with nearly 500 people flying between eastern New England and the Islands on any given day.

At 5,095 miles, Hawaiian´s BOS-HNL route becomes the longest regularly scheduled route in the US.

Hawaiian Airlines offers non-stop service to Hawai´i from more US gateway cities (12) than any other airline, along with service from Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa and Tahiti. Hawaiian also provides approximately 170 jet flights daily between the Hawaiian Islands, and more than 250 daily flights system-wide. Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. is a subsidiary of Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HA).

JetBlue (NASDAQ: JBLU) is New York´s Hometown Airline®, and a leading carrier in Boston, Fort Lauderdale – Hollywood, Los Angeles (Long Beach), Orlando, and San Juan. JetBlue carries more than 40 million customers a year to 103 cities in the US, Caribbean, and Latin America with an average of 1,000 daily flights.
