JetBlue will place its "B6" code on all Emirates flights to and from the United States, including the newly inaugurated non-stop Emirates route between New York/JFK and Milan, Italy.  JetBlue intends to file for approval to codeshare on the recently announced Emirates route between Dubai and JetBlue's focus city in Boston, Massachusetts.  

"Emirates has been a terrific partner for JetBlue, and we are pleased to be deepening our partnership with the airline through this codeshare," said Dave Barger, JetBlue's president and chief executive officer. "For many years Emirates has provided customers across our network with a considerable number of high-quality travel options to destinations across the globe. Emirates has been an integral part of JetBlue's successful airline partnership strategy, spurring global demand for travel in many of our key connecting markets, and ultimately contributing to JetBlue's network growth and the jobs and investments that flow from it."  

"Emirates is globally renowned for superior customer focus and care, and to be their primary partner in one of the world's most competitive markets creates great benefits for JetBlue's customers," said Robin Hayes, JetBlue's chief commercial officer. "Additionally, through this arrangement JetBlue and Emirates will now be able to offer U.S. government employees and contractors a competitive choice of destinations and itineraries throughout the Emirates network.  Emirates' growth to Boston means growth for JetBlue. Demand for online connections through Boston is strong, and we expect to announce new destinations from Boston as a direct result of our partnership with Emirates."

The following JetBlue-marketed routes operated by Emirates will be available for sale via global distribution systems (GDSs) starting Monday:

  • Dallas/Fort Worth –Dubai
  • Houston/Intercontinental – Dubai
  • Los AngelesDubai
  • New York/JFK – Dubai
  • New York/JFK – Milan
  • San FranciscoDubai
  • SeattleDubai

The partnership between JetBlue and Emirates began in 2010 with an interline agreement that was extended to a one-way code share agreement in April 2012 when Emirates placed  its "EK" code on JetBlue flights to 28 destinations in the United States and Caribbean.
