JetBlue, Hawaiian Airlines allow more destinations per ticket

JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) has expanded its existing partnership with Hawaiian Airlines through a bilateral codeshare agreement, the company said.

JetBlue is placing its ´B6´ code on nonstop flights operated by Hawaiian Airlines between New York (JFK) and Honolulu (HNL). The ´B6´ code is also available on select connecting flights from JetBlue´s east coast network to Honolulu via Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO) and Las Vegas (LAS) and onward to Hawaiian´s neighbor island network to destinations including Maul (OGG), Kona (KOA) and Lihue (LIH).

Additionally, Hawaiian´s ´HA´ code, which has been on select JetBlue flights since 2012, is expanding to additional destinations in JetBlue´s growing network.

Customers purchasing a codeshare itinerary will benefit from having a single ticket that includes both Hawaiian and JetBlue-operated flights as well as conveniences on their day of travel like one-stop check-in and baggage transfer.

Hawaiian offers flights between Hawaii and 11 US mainland airports, including JetBlue´s home at the award-winning T5 at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Hawaiian Airlines operates the only year-round, non-stop flight between Hawaii and JFK, offering convenient connections within the same terminal to JetBlue flights across the US, Caribbean and Latin America.

JetBlue is New York´s Hometown Airlineâ„¢, and a leading carrier in Boston, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, Los Angeles (Long Beach), Orlando, and San Juan. It carries more than 35 million customers a year to 95 cities in the US, Caribbean, and Latin America with an average of 900 daily flights.

Now in its 86th year of continuous service, Hawaiian is Hawai´i´s biggest and longest-serving airline, as well as the largest provider of passenger air service from its primary visitor markets on the US Mainland. Hawaiian offers non-stop service to Hawai´i from more US gateway cities (11) than any other airline, along with service from Japan, South Korea, China, Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa and Tahiti. Hawaiian also provides approximately 160 jet flights daily between the Hawaiian Islands, with a total of more than 200 daily flights system-wide.
