Qatar Airways has announced an expansion of its code-share partnership with US-based JetBlue, adding 29 new code-share destinations on the airline’s route network from Boston Logan International Airport.
The expanded partnership will take effect from March 16, 2016, to coincide with the launch of Qatar Airways’ daily direct flights to Boston. Passengers will now be able to connect onto JetBlue’s network with a “seamless transfer process” via both New York and Boston, according to a statement.
“The strengthening of this code-share agreement comes at a time when Qatar Airways is focused upon expanding its own direct links to the US and beyond with the launch of non-stop services to Los Angeles, Atlanta and Boston throughout 2016,” said Akbar al-Baker, Group chief executive of Qatar Airways. “Passengers travelling to Boston on our latest flagship A350 XWB aircraft will be able to connect onwards to almost 30 JetBlue destinations across the continent, enhancing the overall passenger experience for all, thanks to this expanded code-share agreement.”
The partnership will include new code-share routes from Boston to Austin, Charleston, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Las Vegas, Long Beach, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, New Orleans, Oakland, Orlando, Portland, Raleigh Durham, Richmond, Sacramento, Saint Thomas, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, San Juan, Sarasota, Savannah, Seattle, Tampa and West Palm Beach.
At the annual Skytrax 2015 World Airline Awards in June, Qatar Airways was honoured with the World’s Best Airline, Best Business Class Airline Seat and Best Airline in the Middle East awards.
The Doha-based airline flies a fleet of 166 aircraft to 152 key business and leisure destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America.
