Norwegian Air and JetBlue are making travelers dreams come true.
The two popular air carriers have announced a new partnership that will see the two airlines interlining between the US and Europe. Travel across the pond just got lit. Starting mid-next year passengers with Norwegian Air and JetBlue will be able to fly between Europe and the United States and make connecting flights on a single booking.
“Customers will have the possibility to book connecting flights on both airlines’ websites by combining the best of our complementary and expansive networks,” the airlines said.
The partnership with JetBlue will connect JetBlue flights from around 100 cities in the Americas to Norwegian’s network in New York, Boston and Fort Lauderdale, from which the carrier serves more than 20 European destinations.
Though they may seem very different, the two airlines share much in common. While they both follow different low-cost models, both Norwegian and JetBlue offer perks including onboard Wi-Fi and relatively new planes with more legroom than many of their competitors.
JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes described the deal as a collaboration that will give travelers greater choice: “Norwegian and JetBlue share the vision that increased competition and lower prices will benefit customers, especially on transatlantic routes dominated by sky-high prices, network companies and alliances.”
Combination tickets will be available from both Norwegian and JetBlue during the first half of 2020.
