News in brief: JetBlue, TravelPerk and CMAC Group

JetBlue’s nonstop service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) starts today (June 29). This marks JetBlue’s second transatlantic market debut, following the airline’s launch of a London service in August 2021.

TravelPerk has partnered with American Airlines to provide more choice and savings through an NDC connection. It comes after American’s announcement earlier this year of its commitment to offering its best third-party content solely through NDC, which means companies that don’t have this connection could lose out on around 40% of the airline’s content.

CMAC Group has acquired Coach Hire Comparison. This is the second acquisition that CMAC Group has made in recent months, following its purchase of Suntransfers, one of Europe’s largest airport transfer companies, in September 2022.  Coach Hire Comparison was founded in 2010, offering customers a convenient way to source multiple quotes from independent minibus and coach companies.
