NEW YORK & FORT WORTH, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jul 20, 2021–
JetBlue (NASDAQ: JBLU) and American Airlines (NASDAQ: AAL) are providing customers the most choice in the Northeast, on the best product, and with a premium experience, as travelers return to the sky. As part of their Northeast Alliance (NEA), JetBlue and American will operate more than 700 daily flights from New York and Boston this winter, giving customers more choice than any other airline can offer.
“Our Northeast Alliance with JetBlue gives customers more choices and benefits and raises the bar on offering an industry-leading experience,” said Vasu Raja, American’s Chief Revenue Officer. “With JetBlue’s domestic strength and American’s growing international network, we are unlocking more destinations for travelers, more flying for both our teams, a better suite of products and a premium experience in the Northeast.”
JetBlue – New York’s Hometown Airline® and leading low-fare carrier, and the largest airline in Boston – announced today that customers can purchase tickets for several new markets launching this fall, including four new destinations the airline is adding to its route map.
“With demand for travel returning, JetBlue’s new low-fare flying – along with the broader growth made possible with American through the benefits of the NEA – is well-timed for us to best meet the needs of more travelers in the Northeast and introduce more competition with new flying,” said Dave Fintzen, vice president, Northeast Alliance, JetBlue. “Whether it’s new cities, more lie-flat service on cross country routes, enhancing our combined schedules on key routes, or expanding benefits for corporate customers as they return to the skies, the NEA is going to make it as easy as possible for travelers in the Northeast to come back to flying.”
