NEW YORK, NY and SINGAPORE--(Marketwired - May 29, 2014) - JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU), New York's Hometown Airline™, and Singapore Airlines, one of the world's most awarded airlines, have filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation to enter into a bilateral codeshare agreement.

JetBlue and Singapore Airlines have been interline partners since 2011. The expanded partnership would provide customers seamless connections between the two airlines, combining flights on both carriers and easily facilitating one-stop ticketing and baggage check-in. Flights will become available for sale pending regulatory approval.

Under the proposed codeshare, JetBlue customers would have access to five new cities in Europe and Asia, while Singapore Airlines customers would have access to 16 destinations in the U.S.

"Singapore Airlines is a world-class airline renowned for its superior customer service and product offering. By expanding our partnership, JetBlue customers will have access to many more destinations around the globe, enjoying the ultimate service and comfort throughout their entire journey. This is another first-rate airline partner for JetBlue in a short time, which truly reaffirms our growing status among airlines globally," said JetBlue President Robin Hayes.

"We are pleased with our new codeshare agreement with JetBlue Airways. This partnership is testament to our continuous commitment to expand our network and provide customers with more seamless travel options. The opportunities offered by our combined network also show how we can achieve more by cooperating with the right partners," said Singapore Airlines' Executive Vice President Commercial, Mr. Mak Swee Wah.

Under the proposed agreement, JetBlue would put its 'B6' code on Singapore Airlines' flights to/from the U.S. including:

  • Los Angeles (LAX) - Tokyo (NRT) - Singapore (SIN)
  • New York (JFK) - Frankfurt (FRA) - Singapore (SIN)
  • San Francisco (SFO) - Hong Kong (HKG) - Singapore (SIN)

  • Austin, Texas
  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Buffalo, New York
