Booking flights to the Caribbean’s most coveted (and hard to reach) vacation destinations just got a lot easier. JetBlue has announced the expansion its partnership with Cape Air to include a codeshare agreement for flights throughout the U.S. Northeast and the Caribbean, giving travelers a host of options from JetBlue’s San Juan Hub.
The new codeshare arrangement gives travelers the ability to purchase a single-ticket for flights to two dozen destinations operated by CapeAir and JetBlue. So, not only can you get to off-the-grid luxury destinations like Vieques, Culebra, Puerto Rico,:St. Croix; St. Thomas, Tortola and Virgin Gorda, along with the Puerto Rican destination of Mayaguez, but you can do so with only one check-in and baggage transfer. Who doesn’t like to limit the chances of lost luggage?
“No matter how big or small our customers’ hometown or destination may be, they can be sure JetBlue and Cape Air will make booking a ticket and traveling more convenient than ever before. And, as we mark a decade of working with Cape Air, we couldn’t be more pleased to strengthen this important relationship with our original airline partner.” – Robin Hayes, president and CEO, JetBlue
JetBlue’s partnership with Cape Air, who serves destinations like Bar Harbor, Maine; Provincetown, Mass.; Vieques, Puerto Rico and Tortola, British Virgin Islands, began in 2007, and now all offered routes can be purchased directly on JetBlue.com
“The new codeshare agreement further solidifies our shared commitment to offering an expanded network and a seamless travel experience for our customers,” – Linda Markham, president of Cape Air.
JetBlue also has a codeshare agreement with regional carrier Seaborne, also based in Puerto Rico.
