American and JetBlue will form a robust partnership centered upon the New York area and Boston, part of both carriers’ strategy to accelerate their recovery from the Covid-19 crisis.
At the core of the partnership is a planned codeshare arrangement that would give American customers access to 130 JetBlue routes. Conversely, JetBlue plans to affix its code on 60 American routes.
As part of the agreement, JetBlue pledged to further build its presence at all three major New York-area airports, while American has announced new international routes from New York JFK.
American also announced plans Tuesday to launch service between JFK and Tel Aviv once the partnership is implemented and to offer seasonal JFK-Athens service next summer. The routes will be the first long-haul services American has launched from New York in more than four years, it said.
Once the pandemic is over, American envisions the partnership facilitating new long-haul service from New York to markets in Europe, Africa, India and South America. Such routes would complement the carrier’s existing transatlantic Northeast network from Philadelphia.
