Jetblue and Winair Start Interline Agreement for Enhanced Connections in the Caribbean
Interline agreements are special partnerships between airlines which mean passengers are able to connect seamlessly from 1 airline to another without having to recheck bags or book separate tickets.
From November 10, 2022, the interline agreement between JetBlue and WINAIR is live and passengers will be able to book 1 stop itineraries from the U.S. to 1 of WINAIR’s 7 Caribbean destinations when booking directly on JetBlue.com or via the air airline’s app.
As it stands, JetBlue currently operates 2 nonstop services from the U.S. to Sint Maarten (SXM), both in the Northeast from New York (JFK) and Boston (BOS).
From there, passengers are now able to connect onto WINAIR flights to Antigua (ANU), Curação (CUR), Saba (SAB), Saint Barthélemy (SBH), Saint Kitts (SKB), Sint Eustatius (EUX), and Tortola, British Virgin Isles (EIS).
The new interline routes from Sint Maarten to Saba, Sint Eustatius, Saint Barthélemy, and Tortola will be brand new 1-stop connection options for travelers in Boston and New York as these 4 of the 7 total interline options are currently without nonstop service to the U.S.
Additionally, passengers will be able to book 1-stop itineraries from Boston (BOS), New York (JFK), Newark (EWR), and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) to Curação (CUR) via Aruba (AUA) as well as from New York (JFK) to St Kitts (SKB) via Antigua (ANU).
