Our Newest Partner: Japan Airlines!

We’re excited to expand our partnership network with the addition of Japan Airlines!

Effective immediately, customers may book tickets for combined travel on JetBlue and Japan Airlines through JAL’s gateways at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). Customers may book their connecting travel by calling Japan Airlines or by contacting their preferred travel agent.

JAL offers twice-daily nonstop service from both LAX and JFK to the carrier’s hub at Tokyo’s Narita International Airport, where travellers may connect onward to most major cities in Asia including Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Seoul, Shanghai, and Taipei.

From New York, JetBlue offers easy connections between JAL-operated flights and cities up and down the United States’ East Coast including Buffalo/Niagara Falls, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, and cities throughout Florida. From Los Angeles, JetBlue and JAL will offer connecting service to Boston, New York, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Boston – Asia service to begin in April
The Japanese carrier plans to begin nonstop service between Tokyo-Narita and our Boston focus city later this year – an exciting new route that marks the commercial debut of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner in the U.S. market – making Boston the third connecting point between JetBlue and JAL. The new service between Boston and Tokyo, operated by JAL as part of its transpacific joint business agreement with American Airlines, will be the only nonstop link from New England to Asia.

With a mid-day arrival and departure time, JAL’s new service is perfectly timed for onward connections with JetBlue to destinations throughout the Northeast and Florida.
