The FINANCIAL — JetBlue Airways, New York's Hometown Airline, and Singapore Airlines, one of the world's most respected carriers, announce the launch of a new interline agreement that will offer customers new travel options from JetBlue destinations in the United States to Europe, Singapore and beyond.
Singapore Airlines offers the convenience of all-business class service each day from Newark to its hub at Changi International Airport in Singapore – the world's longest nonstop commercial flight – with connections throughout Southeast Asia. In addition, the airline also flies daily from New York/JFK to Singapore via Frankfurt. Beginning January 16, 2012, Singapore Airlines will deploy the A380 superjumbo on its daily service to JetBlue's home at New York/JFK.
At Singapore Changi Airport, customers have access to an extensive network of flight connections to destinations including Bali, Bangkok, Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City, Kuala Lumpur, and Manila, among many others. Singapore Airlines operates a modern passenger fleet of more than 100 aircraft and its network, including Singapore Airlines Cargo and SilkAir destinations, covers a total of 103 cities in 39 countries.
JetBlue is the largest domestic airline at New York/JFK, offering more than 150 daily flights that feature all-leather seating, the most legroom in coach of any U.S. airline, free in-flight entertainment at every seatback, and unlimited free snacks and drinks. It offers non-stop service to dozens of top destinations including Boston, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C and from Newark to Boston, Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale.
Through this partnership, customers will now be able to book a single combined ticket for JetBlue and Singapore Airlines-operated flights with one stop check-in and baggage transfer between the two airlines. Customers may purchase JetBlue-Singapore Airlines travel via travel agents, online, or through Singapore Airlines' reservations call center.
