7-Oct-2013 8:50 AM

JetBlue Airways stated (04-Oct-2013) it will open bookings for services as part of its bilateral codeshare with Emirates on 07-Oct-2013. The carrier will place its code on all Emirates services to the US, and intends to file for approval to codeshare on Emirates' Dubai-Boston service, which will launch on 10-Mar-2014. JetBlue Airways president and CEO Dave Barger said: "Emirates has been a terrific partner for JetBlue, and we are pleased to be deepening our partnership with the airline through this codeshare." Mr Barger added: "Emirates has been an integral part of JetBlue's successful airline partnership strategy, spurring global demand for travel in many of our key connecting markets, and ultimately contributing to JetBlue's network growth and the jobs and investments that flow from it." JetBlue Airways CCO Robin Hayes stated: "Additionally, through this arrangement JetBlue and Emirates will now be able to offer US government employees and contractors a competitive choice of destinations and itineraries throughout the Emirates network.  Emirates' growth to Boston means growth for JetBlue. Demand for online connections through Boston is strong, and we expect to announce new destinations from Boston as a direct result of our partnership with Emirates." [more - original PR]
