In Thursday’s announcment, JetBlue’s Vice President of Loyalty & Partnerships, Chris Buckner, said,

“We know the JetBlue journey starts long before our customers step aboard one of our flights, which is why we are making more of the entire travel experience even easier and even more rewarding. This partnership will help us further evolve and enhance our TrueBlue program so our most loyal customers can enjoy more perks more often.”
