JetBlue and JetSuiteX have announced a first-of-its-kind partnership that makes JetSuiteX-operated flights available on JetBlue.com via a new codeshare agreement.
For travel starting May 1, 2018, JetBlue will place its B6 airline code on JetSuiteX Air-operated flights between US West Coast destinations, offering new point-to-point routes for JetBlue customers. This includes flights between California locations Burbank, Concord, Oakland, and Las Vegas. The deal marks the first codeshare between a semi-private-public charter operator and a major national carrier.
Alex Wilcox, CEO of JetSuiteX, said, “We are delighted to introduce even more people to the JetSuiteX experience and to provide new options to JetBlue customers in their West Coast travels in an exciting new way through this partnership with JetBlue.
“This first-of-its-kind agreement marks an important milestone as we enhance the distribution and availability of JetSuiteX into traditional airline channels. We are proud to be partnered with the iconic JetBlue Airways.”
Customers booking on to valid flights will get the benefits of JetSuiteX’s semi-private flying experience, traveling between private terminals for commercial airline prices.
Additional JetSuiteX features include two free checked bags, extra leg room, power at every seat and complimentary cocktail and snack service on board.
Tracy Bink, director airline partnerships at JetBlue, commented, “JetBlue and JetSuiteX share a common vision focused on innovation and offering travelers an unmatched level of service when they fly, which is why our partnership is such a perfect match. Together JetBlue and JetSuiteX are leading the industry in creating a flying experience unlike anything else on the west coast.”
At present, the codeshare does not include connecting flights to or from JetBlue’s network. Customers must arrive and depart from JetSuiteX’s private terminals and FBOs for their JetSuiteX operated flights.
