Under the new agreement, customers can purchase joint Emirates-JetBlue itineraries by calling their local reservations office or booking through www.emirates.com, meaning that dozens of US cities, including Boston, Chicago, Orlando and Washington are now just a smooth connection away. Customers will be issued with a single combined ticket for Emirates and Jet Blue-operated flights and enjoy one-stop check-in and baggage transfer between the airlines, according to Emirates’ press release.

“Our new partnership with JetBlue will enable customers from across the United States to connect quickly and easily to Emirates’ extensive network of worldwide destinations,’’ said Nigel Page, Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations for Americas and Africa.

Emirates is one the world’s largest international carriers, flying to 108 cities around the world with a fleet of wide-bodied aircraft equipped with industry-leading comforts in the air.

JetBlue is the leading airline at JFK Airport, where it offers premium low-fare service to dozens of cities throughout the Americas and carries more travellers than any other airline.
