The breakup of partnership between Emirates and JetBlue first appeared on the Emirates website. JetBlue later issued a statement and confirmed the spat.
“JetBlue will terminate its codeshare partnership with Emirates effective October 30, 2022, and customers will no longer be able to purchase tickets for Emirates-operated flights through JetBlue's booking channels.” ;, — the airline said in a statement. “JetBlue customers with existing bookings, namely Emirates segments, will not see any changes to their itineraries, however they will not earn Points on Emirates flights starting October 30th.”
According to experts, Participation in the codeshare program was especially beneficial for JetBlue, as it allowed US government employees to book tickets on the airline's flights from the Gulf region. Government employees are generally limited to booking tickets with US carriers, and codeshare has just become a loophole that allows them to travel on Emirates if the flight is booked with a JetBlue ticket number.
On its website, Emirates confirmed that passengers May earn Skywards Miles on JetBlue flights through October 29.
JetBlue and Emirates partnered in 2012.
