TAP Portugal signed a code share agreement with JetBlue, allowing customers more seamless flight options through several North American gateways, including JetBlue’s hub airport of John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York and Logan International Airport (BOS) in Boston.  

Through this agreement, TAP will be able to place its code on JetBlue flights departing New York - JFK or Boston - Logan to as many as 34 North American cities, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington D.C, Chicago, Las Vegas, Orlando, Detroit, New Orleans, Savannah, San Juan, Richmond and Tampa, among others. JetBlue operates the largest domestic operation at both airports.  

Jose Guedes Dias, vice president, alliances, industry and regulatory affairs, TAP, said that by TAP combining its transatlantic services with JetBlue's domestic flights, both airlines' customers benefit from the smoothness of the flight connections.

Currently, TAP operates flights to Newark and Miami and is now extending services to the U.S. as part of its expansion strategy. It will begin daily flights from Lisbon to Boston on June 11, and daily flights to New York – JFK starting in early July. Both will be operated with new Airbus A330 aircraft to be delivered soon. That will increase TAP’s U.S. service to 30 flights a week.
