Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Tuesday, 1 September 2009

Lufthansa is planning to offer its customers extended travel options in the USA and Puerto Rico under a codeshare agreement with the US-airline JetBlue.

The codeshare agreement has already been submitted for approval to the US Department of Transportation. Pending the go-ahead from the DOT, the codeshare flights will be available for sale at the end of September.

JetBlue flights to the following destinations will in future be offered under the Lufthansa code: Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester, Pittsburgh, Raleigh-Durham, Austin, New Orleans, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, West Palm Beach and San Juan.

Passengers heading to those destinations can fly initially with Lufthansa from Frankfurt and Munich to New York JFK or Boston and transit seamlessly there to connecting flights bearing the Lufthansa code with JetBlue.

Lufthansa and JetBlue Airways concluded a series of share transactions in January 2008, in which Lufthansa acquired a stake of 15.6% in JetBlue. The US carrier, headquartered in New York, offers 650 daily flights to 56 destinations.
