Singapore Airlines and JetBlue Partner to Offer New Connections to Destinations Worldwide

Singapore Airlines offers the convenience of all-business class service each day from Newark to its hub at Changi International Airport in Singapore – the world's longest nonstop commercial flight - with connections throughout Southeast Asia. In addition, the airline also flies daily from New York/JFK to Singapore via Frankfurt. Beginning January 16, 2012, Singapore Airlines will deploy the A380 superjumbo on its daily service to JetBlue's home at New York/JFK.
At Singapore Changi Airport, customers have access to an extensive network of flight connections to destinations including Bali, Bangkok, Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City, Kuala Lumpur, and Manila, among many others. Singapore Airlines operates a modern passenger fleet of more than 100 aircraft and its network, including Singapore Airlines Cargo and SilkAir destinations, covers a total of 103 cities in 39 countries.
JetBlue is the largest domestic airline at New York/JFK, offering more than 150 daily flights that feature all-leather seating, the most legroom in coach of any U.S. airline*, free in-flight entertainment at every seatback, and unlimited free snacks and drinks. It offers non-stop service to dozens of top destinations including Boston, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C and from Newark to Boston, Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale.
Through this partnership, customers will now be able to book a single combined ticket for JetBlue and Singapore Airlines-operated flights with one stop check-in and baggage transfer between the two airlines. Customers may purchase JetBlue-Singapore Airlines travel via travel agents, online, or through Singapore Airlines' reservations call center.
"Singapore Airlines is one the world's leading airlines, and a pioneer in many ways," said Scott Resnick, JetBlue's director of airline partnerships. "We're happy to have our customers connect seamlessly on to their comfortable flights to Europe and Asia Pacific, where everything from the entertainment to the in-flight meals is carefully selected, providing a great complement to JetBlue's award-winning service!"
"JetBlue has for years been a passenger favourite for travel within the region," said C.W. Foo, Regional Vice President – Americas for Singapore Airlines. "This new partnership provides a seamless link for passengers in dozens of interior U.S. points to connect to our unique brand of Asian hospitality when travelling abroad."
