JetBlue Airways will reportedly end its relationship with long-time credit card partner American Express, and adopt a new card issued by Barclays and MasterCard.

The move, first reported by Bloomberg News, follows American Express’ announcement on Thursday that it is ending its partnership with Costco.

JetBlue and American Express have been in a partnership since 2005.

American Express’ largest airline partner, Delta Air Lines, recently renewed its contract with the card issuer, as did Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.
