American Airlines and JetBlue announced today a new partnership to offer travelers added loyalty benefits and travel opportunities. This new collaboration aims to corner the Northeast market — much like the 2020 deal between American Airlines and Alaska Airlines, announced pre-COVID-19, which ultimately fizzled due to travel bans.
American Airlines and JetBlue will now codeshare on designated flights, opening American customers to JetBlue’s domestic network, specifically in New York and Boston, while JetBlue passengers enjoy greater capability to fly with American’s vast international connections. Travelers can easily book and transfer flights between the two airlines and earn benefits across both frequent-flyer programs, including miles and elite status.
“Both airlines’ customers value access to more destinations, whether it’s a JetBlue customer who wants more direct access to South America from New York, or an American customer who wants more robust service to Florida,” said Vasu Raja, head of routes and network, American Airlines.
Travelers flying either airline, or both, will soon be able to book travel using one single ticket and enjoy seamless check-ins and connections. Customers will also enjoy access to JetBlue’s Mint, and American Airlines’ three-class transcontinental service. More information about loyalty benefits for AAdvantage and TrueBlue members will be available soon.
The partnership also brings new routes. Beginning next year, travelers can fly from New York (JFK) to Tel Aviv (TLV), Athens (ATH), or Rio de Janeiro (GIG), to name a few. More routes are to be announced and will likely involve American’s long-haul markets in Europe, South America, Africa and India.
THE START OF A JOURNEY. Apprehension mingles with excitement. What lies ahead? Standing on Scotland’s west coast, we know the bare bones of what we’re facing: 134 miles of hiking, a coast-to-coast traverse of the country. But what will we see along the way? Who will we meet? How wet will we get?
While urban wine country might sound like an oxymoron, it’s actually a reality at the stunning City Vineyard in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood. The water-side venue is the perfect host for your next event — whatever that may be, from 20 to 200 guests and from cocktail party to plated dinner.
MULTIGENERATIONAL TRAVEL IS NOTHING NEW; travelers have taken their kids on vacation for, well, generations. But as our lives and our kids’ lives — and even those of retired parents — become busier, the urge to gather everyone together for shared vacation experiences emerges as a top travel trend.
This summer, family travel at The Peninsula receives an upgrade with the debut of Camp Peninsula, a children’s experience that recreates the spirit of camping right in the heart of Beverly Hills. The journey begins with a special welcome from Peter Bear, the hotel’s lovable mascot, at check-in. After taking a picture with the life-sized teddy bear, kids will be whisked away by a Peninsula Camp Counselor to a luxurious guestroom where a charming teepee awaits. An afternoon of camp-themed games and activities, including a hotel-wide scavenger hunt, rounds off the family-friendly experience, fun for children of all ages. Whether it’s a luxe staycation or an extended holiday, Camp Peninsula is an ideal way to ensure the little ones are happy campers.
Few cities in the world offer as much for couples who share a love of art as Madrid. Travelers can choose from romantic hotels a few steps from three of Europe’s finest art museums. Without leaving that same “Avenue of the Arts” they can stroll through a beautiful botanic garden and visit an innovative contemporary art center.
