Under the expanded agreement, JetBlue will place its airline code on all flights currently operated by Emirates between the US and Dubai International Airport, as well as between New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Milan, Italy.

Current codeshare routes offered by Emirates on JetBlue-operated flights cover 28 destinations including Boston, Chicago, Orlando and Puerto Rico. Since March this year, Emirates also began placing its code on additional JetBlue routes, including Bridgetown, Barbados, Cancun, Mexico, Montego Bay, Jamaica and Santo Domingo, Santiago and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ executive vice president of passenger sales worldwide said: “Offering a boost to tourism and added convenience for inbound travellers, the codeshare also gives Emirates’ customers a new choice of destinations with the benefit of a single combined ticket.”
