JetBlue, South African Airways Announce Codeshare
JetBlue said it has entered into a codeshare agreement with South Africa Airways. Under the agreement, JetBlue will be able to place its code on South African Airways flights between both New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport, and various destinations in Africa.
The agreement covers South African Airways-operated flights between the two airports and both Johannesburg, South Africa, and Dakar, Senegal. It also covers connecting flights from Johannesburg to destinations that include Cape Town, Durban, East London, and Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Passengers will also be able to purchase a single ticket covering JetBlue- and South African Airways-operated flights. The codeshare is an expansion of an interline agreement between the two airlines that began in 2010.
Tickets for the codeshare flights are not yet available. The codeshare requires U.S. Department of Transportation approval, and is subject to receipt of foreign government operating authority.
