JetBlue Expands Codeshare Agreement with Qatar Airways

JetBlue Expands Codeshare Agreement with Qatar Airways
Joe Cortez

After entering a strategic alliance with American Airlines, JetBlue will expand their codesharing agreement with another Oneworld airline. The New York-based carrier will expand an agreement with Qatar Airways, adding the JetBlue “B6” code to flights bound from the United States to Doha.

JetBlue will continue angling themselves towards the Oneworld airline alliance by expanding their codeshare agreement with Qatar Airways. In a press release, the New York-based carrier announced they would add their code to a number of flights between the United States and Qatar, along with several international routes out of Doha Hamad International Airport (DOH).

JetBlue to Codeshare on Nine U.S. Routes, Seven Doha-Based Routes

Under the agreement, JetBlue will add their code to flights operating on nine routes between the United States and Doha. The routes include several JetBlue strongholds, including Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Miami International Airport (MIA) and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). Other Qatar flights getting the “B6” code include those flying through Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL), Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

In addition, JetBlue’s code will be added to Qatar Airways aircraft operating seven routes out of Hamad International Airport:

  • Amman, Jordan’s Queen Alia International Airport (AMM)
  • Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL)
  • Maldives’ Male International Airport (MLE)
  • Oman’s Muscat International Airport (MCT) & Salalah International Airport (SLL)
  • Seychelles International Airport (SEZ)
  • Singapore Changi Airport (SIN)
  • Uganda’s Entebbe International Airport (EBB)

According to JetBlue, the new agreement offers much more flexibility for both carriers as the industry recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. Flyers aboard the codeshares will be allowed to fly on JetBlue’s network across the United States and the Caribbean, while those departing the United States can connect on a JetBlue flight directly to the luxury carrier’s options.

“JetBlue and Qatar Airways lead the industry with our award-winning service and exceptional inflight experiences, which is why our partnership has been such a great success for the past decade,” Scott Laurence, head of revenue and planning at JetBlue, said in a press release. “Now, with an expanded codeshare covering nearly a dozen major U.S. gateways or connecting points, even more travelers can enjoy a seamless global travel experience between our airlines.”

New JetBlue Codeshare Agreement Expands Alignment with Oneworld

Although JetBlue has not announced any intentions to join the Oneworld alliance, their newest partnership is the second in a year with airlines in the group. In 2020, JetBlue announced a strategic alliance with American Airlines, expanding codesharing and interconnectivity between the two carriers.
