JetBlue Airways and Japan Airlines (JAL) have announced a codeshare agreement that includes connecting East Coast flights to and from New York's JFK and Boston's Logan International Airport.

At New York, JetBlue offers easy connections between JAL-operated flights and cities including Buffalo, N.Y.; Burlington, Vt.; Charlotte, N.C.; Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Orlando, Sarasota, Tampa and West Palm Beach, Fla.; Houston, Texas; New Orleans, La.; Portland, Maine; Rochester and Syracuse, N.Y.; and Washington, D.C. (Dulles).  

Via Boston, customers can connect to Tokyo from thirteen U.S. destinations including Buffalo, N.Y.; Baltimore, MD; Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa and West Palm Beach, Fla.; Pittsburgh; Raleigh/Durham, N.C.; Richmond, Va.; and Washington, D.C. (National and Dulles).  

"In addition to our New York and Los Angeles offerings, customers in New England can now conveniently connect in Boston, where we are the largest airline, for direct service to Asia just in time for summer," said Scott Laurence, JetBlue's vice president of network planning and partnerships.
