On Wednesday (December 8, 2021), JetBlue announced an expansion of their codeshare partnership with Aer Lingus, enhancing customer connectivity between both airlines’ networks. Under the codeshare expansion, JetBlue will place their ‘B6’ code on four Aer Lingus routes between JetBlue’s Northeast focus cities and Ireland, including flights from New York (JFK) to Dublin (DUB) and Shannon (SNN), as well as from Boston (BOS) to Dublin and Shannon. In the near future, JetBlue plans on adding their ‘B6’ code to select Aer Lingus routes beyond Ireland.


In Today’s announcement, JetBlue’s President and Chief Operating Officer, Joanna Geraghty, said,

“Connecting our customers with more of the destinations they want to fly to ensures JetBlue grows its relevance in the Northeast, and by expanding our partnership with Aer Lingus we’re introducing new options for travelers flying between the U.S. and Ireland. More than 13 years after Aer Lingus became our very first international airline partner our relationship continues to strengthen in ways that bring more benefits customers on both sides of the Atlantic.”


Also commenting on the codeshare expansion, Aer Lingus’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Lynne Embleton, said,


“Our relationship with JetBlue is long-standing and valued. All at Aer Lingus are looking forward to extending a warm Irish welcome to more JetBlue customers. These customers can now travel seamlessly to Dublin and Shannon airports as we continue to connect friends and families, businesses and colleagues from the US and Europe.”


JetBlue and Aer Lingus guests booking a codeshare itinerary will benefit from having a single ticket that includes flights by both airlines, as well as one-stop check-in and baggage transfer. Customers traveling to the U.S. from Ireland will also enjoy pre-clearing customs prior to departure from Dublin or Shannon. JetBlue and Aer Lingus have enjoyed a commercial partnership since 2008, including a unilateral codeshare agreement since 2013. Currently, the Aer Lingus ‘EI’ code is available on over three dozen JetBlue routes, offering customers seamless connections via New York and Boston.


Aer Lingus will operate 16 transatlantic routes from Dublin, Shannon and Manchester to North America and the Caribbean in 2022. Aer Lingus is a Skytrax 4-Star airline and a member of the International Consolidated Airlines Group (IAG), one of the world’s largest airline groups.


JetBlue is ‘New York’s Hometown Airline® and a leading carrier in Boston (BOS), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Los Angeles (LAX), Orlando (MCO) and San Juan (SJU). The airline carries guests to destinations across the U.S., Caribbean, Latin America and London (Heathrow and Gatwick). JetBlue Airways Corporation trades on the NASDAQ under the ticker symbol JBLU.
