JetBlue said it has entered into an interline agreement with British Airways.  The agreement will connect the two airlines’ networks at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport, Orlando International Airport, and Washington Dulles International Airport.

The agreement will initially cover 18 daily transatlantic British Airways flights, more than 50 U.S. routes on JetBlue’s network, and over 100 British Airways routes beyond London.  British Airways intercontinental routes that are part of the agreement include Boston-London Heathrow, JFK-London City Airport,JFK-London Heathrow, JFK-Paris Orly Airport, Orlando-London Gatwick, and Washington Dulles-London Heathrow.

The interline agreement is the first between the two airlines, as well as the 25th airline agreement for JetBlue.  Earlier this year, JetBlue signed an interline agreement with Asiana Airlines.

Last month, British Airways announced plans to bring Finnair into its joint business venture with Japan Airlines.
