JetBlue Airways and Japan Airlines have announced an interline partnership. Through the agreement, customers may book tickets for combined travel on JetBlue and Japan Airlines through New York John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
JAL offers daily nonstop service from New York and Los Angeles to the carrier's hub at Tokyo's Narita International Airport (NRT), where travelers may connect onward to most major cities in Asia including Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Seoul, Shanghai and Taipei.
In addition to the JFK and LAX gateways, where JetBlue and JAL will launch their interline agreement, JAL also offers daily service from Chicago O'Hare to Tokyo-Narita and from San Francisco to Tokyo-Haneda. Japan Airlines plans to begin nonstop service between Tokyo-Narita and Boston, which JetBlue also serves. This will be the third connecting point for JAL and JetBlue.
