Interjet Airlines and JetBlue have announced a new bilateral interline agreement that will provide passengers with extensive travel opportunities. Under the new partnership, passengers will have the ease of purchasing a single air ticket for flights with both airlines, with the ability to check baggage from the point of departure to the final destination and obtain simple connections at airports served by both airlines. This is not Interjet`s first Interline agreement. Last year, the airline announced a similar deal with Emirates. This has allowed the Mexican airline to offer the world of destinations operated by the Emirati airline. In 2019, it ranked #399 financially on the list of the largest U.S. companies in terms of total revenue.  JetBlue flies more than 1,000 flights per day and flies to 100 domestic and international destinations in the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America.   JetBlue is not a member of any of the three major airline alliances, but has codeshare agreements with 21 airlines, including member companies of Oneworld, SkyTeam, Star Alliance and unrelated airlines. JetBlue has signed a bilateral interline agreement with Mexican airline Interjet, which means that airlines can sell each other flights and passengers can check tickets and baggage on airline flights. Interjet, which applies 55 destinations across The Americas, has also entered into Interline agreements with Alitalia, British Airways, All Nippon Airways, Lufthansa, Hainan Airlines, Emirates, Japan Airlines, Eva Air, Hahn, Air Canada, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines and Qantas, as well as codeshare agreements with American Airlines, Iberia and Latam.
For JetBlue, however, the advantage of this Interline agreement is not on Interjet`s international roadmap. In fact, JetBlue flies the same international destinations as Interjet, with the exception of Canada and El Salvador. What JetBlue earns is the Mexican domestic market. In 2011, JetBlue entered into interline agreements with Virgin Atlantic and Jet Airways, both of which were terminated.   Since 2012, JetBlue has entered into an interline agreement with Air China. In addition, an Interline agreement was reached with Porter Airlines, which moved from Billy Bishop Airport to Toronto City to Boston and Newark to the United States.  Unusual for an LCC, however, JetBlue offers more than one cabin class, offers free in-flight entertainment and refreshments, and maintains codeshare agreements with several other airlines.
