Tue, 10/27/2009
Lufthansa, the largest foreign carrier serving Israel, announced last week a partnership with low-cost carrier JetBlue. JetBlue passengers originating in 11 U.S. cities and San Juan, Puerto Rico, will enjoy one-stop reservations and seamless baggage transfer to Lufthansa’s network of more than 400 destinations worldwide, according to a release. Travelers flying JetBlue from these cities, including Buffalo, Syracuse and Ft. Lauderdale, will be able to connect via New York/JFK or Boston onto Lufthansa flights bound for Germany and beyond, including top cities like Delhi, Madrid, Rome, Tel Aviv and Zurich. “Customers of both airlines now have even more travel options available to them when flying to Europe and Israel, with a more convenient transfer process at JFK and Boston airports,” said Tal Muscal, press relations adviser for Lufthansa in Israel, in a statement. Flights can be booked on lufthansa.com, via a link on www.jetblue.com.
