JetBlue and Qatar Airways Expand Partnership

JetBlue Airways recently announced the expansion of its successful partnership with Qatar Airways. The collaboration allows customers of JetBlue Airways more benefits when booking travel to and from international destinations on Qatar Airways airlines.

Details behind the expansion

The adapted partnership shall include increased codesharing in additional markets over the coming months, enhanced benefits for JetBlue and Qatar Airways loyalty members, expanded marketing opportunities and refinements to flight schedules. It is now possible to book Qatar Airways flights (between select markets) directly on JetBlue’s website. 

The new agreement between the two airlines will also provide even more options of travel between the 100+ destinations across North America and the Caribbean run by JetBlue and Qatar Airways’ global network of 82 countries. 

The major low-cost American airline will also develop – with Qatar Airways – an integrated airside transfer option for customers connecting at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK Airport).

In mid-February, JetBlue announced the launch of service between JFK International Airport and the popular tourist destination in Mexico, Puerto Vallarta. 

JetBlue’s CEO Robin Hayes spoke positively about the expansion of the partnership with Qatar’s flag carrier airline:

For more than a decade Qatar Airways has been an excellent partner, consistently delivering an elevated customer experience that aligns extremely well with the JetBlue brand and the expectations of our customers.

Hayes continued, speaking of the decade of partnership and collaboration JetBlue and Qatar have ahead of them:

The enhancements and plans for growth announced today will put Qatar Airways on track to be our largest internationally-based partner.

Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker echoed Hayes, considering the close relationship between the two airlines as a “very positive step for our joint customers.” He continued, praising the “enhanced” partnership as a “positive sign for the recovery of the aviation industry.” 


JetBlue has undergone changes elsewhere, as late February saw the appointment of Jonathan Weiner as the U.S carrier’s new Vice President. 

Qatar Airways has been in the news recently after a route diversion on a flight from India to Qatar due to a fire in the aircraft’s cargo hold. 

Do you welcome the enhanced and extended partnership between JetBlue Airways and Qatar Airways?
