Singapore Airlines currently offers an all-business class service each day from Newark to its hub at Changi International Airport, as well as daily flights from JetBlue's home at JFK International Airport to Singapore via Frankfurt.
Furthermore, as of January 16, 2012, Singapore Airlines will also deploy the A380 superjumbo on its daily service to New York from Changi.
With the new partnership, passengers will now be able to book a single combined ticket for JetBlue and Singapore Airlines-operated flights with one stop check-in and baggage transfer between the two airlines.
Singapore Airlines operates a fleet of more than 100 aircraft and its network, including Singapore Airlines Cargo and SilkAir destinations, covers a total of 103 cities in 39 countries.
Via Changi Airport, the partnership means JetBlue’s passengers now have access to an extensive network of flight connections to destinations including Bali, Bangkok, Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City, Kuala Lumpur, and Manila, among many others.
Scott Resnick, JetBlue's director of airline partnerships, said: “Singapore Airlines is one the world's leading airlines, and a pioneer in many ways.
“We're happy to have our customers connect seamlessly on to their comfortable flights to Europe and Asia Pacific, where everything from the entertainment to the in-flight meals is carefully selected, providing a great complement to JetBlue's award-winning service."
JetBlue is the largest domestic airline at JFK Airport, offering more than 150 daily flights.
It offers non-stop services to dozens of destinations including Boston, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C and from Newark to Boston, Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale.
C.W. Foo, regional vice president - Americas for Singapore Airlines, added: “This new partnership provides a seamless link for passengers in dozens of interior US points to connect to our unique brand of Asian hospitality when travelling abroad.”
