JetBlue Airways, which has been a dominant carrier at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport and has continued to thrive without a global airline alliance, recently indicated that it might tie up with major carriers in the future.
The airline in a statement said that it is hoping to share JetBlue Airways flights booking codes for the first time with major carriers for the first time.
Dave Barger, Chief Executive Officer of JetBlue Airways, said that the New York-based carrier is not planning to join any global airline alliance like Oneworld, SkyTeam or Star.
Barger, however, said that the codeshares with major U.S. carriers is likely to begin this year. The codeshare agreements would help JetBlue Airways to team up with larger U.S. carriers as well as some of the more than 60 international airlines using New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport as a base for overseas flights.
