Norwegian Air And JetBlue Plan Transatlantic Partnership
Norwegian Air and New York's JetBlue Airways have agreed to form a partnership that will allow customers to book flights on each others' aircraft, with a planned startup in mid-2020.
Norwegian Air has shaken up the market for transatlantic travel with cut-price fares that challenge traditional carriers such as IAG's British Airways, but has so far lacked a domestic US partner.
The Ability To Combine Low Fares In A Single Booking
The deal, if completed as intended, will let passengers combine low fares in a single booking for flights between the Americas and Europe, the companies said in a statement.
"Customers will have the possibility to book connecting flights on both airlines' websites by combining the best of our complementary and expansive networks," they added.
