Aer Lingus Announces Codeshare With JetBlue, Moves to JetBlue Terminal at JFK
JetBlue flights to destinations in North America such as Baltimore, Dallas/Fort Worth, Orlando, Rochester, and Tampa Bay will carry Aer Lingus’ code. JetBlue customers will be able to book a single ticket for connecting flights on the two carriers, and receive one-stop check-in and baggage transfer.
In addition to the new codeshare, Aer Lingus will move its operations from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport Terminal 4 to JetBlue’s Terminal 5 on April 3, 2013. Aer Lingus passengers at the airport connecting to various JetBlue destinations in the U.S. will also experience one-stop check-in and baggage transfer. The minimum connection time from a European flight to a U.S. connecting flight will be reduced to 60 minutes; passengers connecting to a flight to Ireland will be able connect in 40 minutes.
The new codeshare agreement builds on the partnership that the two airlines have had since 2008 that linked their operations at JFK and Boston’s Logan International Airport.
