Etihad and JetBlue expand codeshare agreement

Etihad Airways and JetBlue have expanded their codeshare agreement to include loyalty benefits.

Members of JetBlue’s TrueBlue loyalty programme and members of Etihad Guest, the loyalty programme of Etihad Airways, can now earn and redeem Miles in the programme of their choice when flying with either airline.

This builds on a near decade of partnership between the pair on flights from New York and Boston to Etihad’s global network of more than 70 destinations and over 40 destinations across JetBlue’s network within the Americas.  

Mark Potter, Managing Director Etihad Guest, said“JetBlue has been an important partner for Etihad for almost a decade and we’re thrilled to be extending this partnership to our loyalty programmes, benefitting both of our airlines’ valued members. We look forward to welcoming and rewarding TrueBlue members.

“This also further bolsters Etihad’s commitment to the US market, following the recent launch of our direct service connecting Abu Dhabi and Boston, as well as introducing our popular A380 onto the New York route, expanding capacity.”

Christopher Buckner, Vice President Loyalty and Partnerships, JetBlue, added: “This partnership extension delivers both JetBlue TrueBlue and Etihad Guest members more ways to earn and redeem on travel, making exploring either airline’s network of top global destinations even more rewarding.”
