JetSuiteX Codeshares with JetBlue
Per-seat scheduled charter operator JetSuiteX is now a codeshare partner with JetBlue. Starting tomorrow, JetBlue’s “B6” airline code will be placed on JetSuiteX-operated 30-seat Embraer ERJ-135 on West Coast flights between between Burbank, Concord, and Oakland, California, as well as Las Vegas.
According to the companies, the codeshare arrangement does not include connecting flights to or from JetBlue’s network. “Customers must arrive and depart from JetSuiteX’s private terminals and FBOs for their JetSuiteX-operated flights,” they added.
“We are delighted to introduce even more people to the JetSuiteX experience and to provide new options to JetBlue customers in their West Coast travels through this partnership,” said JetSuiteX CEO Alex Wilcox. “This first-of-its-kind agreement marks an important milestone as we enhance the distribution and availability of JetSuiteX into traditional airline channels.”
JetSuiteX allows passengers to check two free bags (up to 50 pounds total) and offers 36 inches of leg room, power at every seat, and complimentary cocktail and snack service. Unlike the airlines, JetSuiteX allows customers to arrive 20 minutes before departure and board in just minutes, Wilcox said.
