JetBlue Airways said Tuesday it would expand its codeshare partnership with Qatar Airways on multiple routes later this month.

The original codeshare agreement was announced in March 2013 and covered JetBlue-operated connecting flights to and from both New York and Washington, D.C.

The expanded agreement calls for the JetBlue code to be placed on nine Qatar Airways routes linking Doha’s Hamad International Airport with Boston Logan International, Chicago O’Hare International, Dallas/Fort Worth International, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, Miami International, and Philadelphia International airports as well as with George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston and John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

Under the agreement, the JetBlue code will also be placed on seven routes originating in Doha, including flights to Queen Alias International Airport in Aan, Jordan; Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia; Male International Airport in Maldives; Muscat International and Salalah International airports on Oman; Seychelles International Airport; Singapore Changi Airport; and Entebee International Airport in Uganda.

The rationale for the expansion, explained Thierry Antinori, Qatar’s chief commercial officer, is that, despite the pandemic, the airline has continued to expand its U.S. presence “by building strong relationships with our strategic airline partners in the region and constantly optimizing our connections between the U.S. and our growing network.”
