JetBlue Airways and Royal Air Maroc have signed an interline agreement connecting passengers at New York's John F. Kennedy (JFK) airport.
Travellers on the New York-based airline can connect to the Moroccan carrier's flight to Casablanca and on to destinations across west Africa, including those in the Central African Republic, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Sierra Leone and Togo.
Royal Air Maroc passengers can connect to JetBlue destinations including Austin, Boston, Buffalo, Ft. Lauderdale, Houston, Los Angeles, Orlando, San Francisco, San Juan and Tampa.
"We are pleased to expand our partnership portfolio by joining with Royal Air Maroc to offer our fliers a new option to Africa," says Scott Resnick, director of airline partnerships at JetBlue. "With Royal Air Maroc, JetBlue customers now have access to even more destinations across north and west Africa from an airline that shares a similar philosophy of putting customers first."
JetBlue said that it plans to add up to nine new interline partners this year in July. Royal Air Maroc is its eighth partner.
