Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 24 January 2012

Hawaiian Airlines and New Yorks JetBlue Airways have entered into a partnership agreement that will make it easy for travelers up and down the East Coast to enjoy the Hawaii travel experience.

Mark Dunkerley, president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines, and Dave Barger, president and CEO of JetBlue, signed the agreement at JetBlues Terminal 5 at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Dunkerley said, This partnership with JetBlue makes Hawaii more accessible than ever for our friends on the East Coast, and in June will put the islands at their doorstep with our new daily nonstop service between JFK and Honolulu.

Effective this week, customers will be able to purchase single tickets combining travel on both Hawaiian and JetBlue, allowing for seamless travel between the carriers networks.

Connections are available for immediate travel via Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), where Hawaiian offers multiple daily departures.

In the near future, Hawaiian intends to codeshare on JetBlue-operated flights, placing its HA code on JetBlue-operated flights.

The carriers plan to further expand their partnership on 5 June 2012, when Hawaiian launches the only nonstop service between New York City and Hawaii with its new wide-body, twin-aisle Airbus A330-200 aircraft seating 294 customers.

Hawaiians daily flights from Honolulu will arrive and depart from JFK Terminal 5, becoming the first of JetBlues airline partners to locate at the carriers acclaimed home.

At Terminal 5 JFK Airports newest terminal travelers can take in a host of shopping options and unique dining experiences, enjoy the convenience of gate-side food ordering and delivery, and surf the web with free terminal-wide Wi-Fi.

Hawaiian Flight 51 will depart JFK daily at 10:00 a.m. and arrive at Honolulu International Airport at 3:00 p.m. The return Flight 50 will depart Honolulu daily at 3:05 p.m. and arrive in New York at 6:55 a.m. the following morning.

The new flights mid-morning New York departure will allow travelers in markets served by JetBlue up and down the East Coast, such as Boston, Buffalo, Charlotte, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, and Raleigh/Durham, to make a seamless connection to Honolulu and arrive in time to enjoy a first afternoon on the beach, or to make another easy connection on Hawaiian to Kauai, Maui, or Hawaii Island and settle in for a beautiful island sunset.

Hawaii residents will also benefit from a new level of access from anywhere in the islands to popular East Coast destinations that are home to world-class attractions, historical sites and major sporting events, all booked on Hawaiian.

New Travel Options for TrueBlue and HawaiianMiles Members

Hawaiian and JetBlue have also reached a preliminary agreement to allow members of each carriers frequent flyer program to earn and redeem loyalty points or miles for travel on either carrier.

Under this agreement JetBlues TrueBlue members will soon be able to accrue points on any Hawaiian-operated flight, while HawaiianMiles members will be able to earn miles on any JetBlue-operated flights.

Similarly, frequent fliers will be able to redeem their points or miles for travel on either carriers network, bringing new, much-requested destinations to each programs loyal members.
