JetBlue and South African Airways seek approval to codeshare

8-Feb-2011 12:11 PM

JetBlue Airways and South African Airways want to expand their partnership to include codesharing from Feb-2011 (Aviation Week, 07-Feb-2011). The two carriers began interlining in May-2010, without code-sharing. But in an application filed with the U.S. Transportation Department dated 02-Feb-2011, the carriers disclosed that they signed a code-sharing agreement on 24-Jan-2011. The carrier is asking for DOT approval to place SAA’s code on any JetBlue flights within the U.S., but identified 17 routes out of New York John F. Kennedy International Airport and four out of Washington Dulles International Airport. Six of the New York city-pairs involve California or Florida markets, with others that include Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Phoenix and Washington. The Washington markets, in addition to New York, are Boston, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando. [more - OST Filing]
