JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) and JetSuiteX have announced a first-of-its-kind partnership making JetSuiteX-operated flights available on JetBlue.com with a new codeshare agreement, the companies said.
For travel starting May 1, 2018, JetBlue will place its “B6” airline code on JetSuiteX Air-operated flights between West Coast destinations, offering new point-to-point routes for JetBlue customers. This includes flights between Burbank, Calif. (BUR); Concord, Calif. (CCR); Oakland, Calif. (OAK); and Las Vegas (LAS), and marks the first codeshare between a semi-private public charter operator (JetSuiteX) and a major national carrier.
Customers purchasing these itineraries will get the benefits of JetSuiteX´s semi-private flying experience, traveling between private terminals for commercial airline prices. Additional JetSuiteX features include two free checked bags (combined up to 50 lbs.), 36″ of leg room, power at every seat and complimentary cocktail and snack service on board. Unlike more traditional major airlines, JetSuiteX customers arrive just 15-20 minutes before departure and board in just minutes, with no cattle calls or baggage claims. And now Corporate customers may book JetSuiteX flights directly at JetBlue.com.
“We are delighted to introduce even more people to the JetSuiteX experience and to provide new options to JetBlue customers in their West Coast travels in an exciting new way through this partnership with JetBlue,” said Alex Wilcox, CEO of JetSuiteX. “This first-of-its-kind agreement marks an important milestone as we enhance the distribution and availability of JetSuiteX into traditional airline channels. We are proud to be partnered with the iconic JetBlue Airways.”
JetBlue is New York´s Hometown AirlineÂ®, and a carrier in Boston, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, Los Angeles (Long Beach), Orlando, and San Juan. JetBlue carries more than 38 million customers a year to 101 cities in the US, Caribbean, and Latin America with an average of 1,000 daily flights. For more information visit jetblue.com.
