Customers also enjoy the convenience of a single combined ticket for Emirates and JetBlue-operated flights, plus other advantages including one-stop check-in and baggage transfer.

Known for its award-winning customer service, JetBlue offers transfer customers from Emirates’ network a premium experience that includes all-leather seating, unlimited free snacks and drinks, the most legroom in economy class (based on average fleet-wide seat pitch) and the most free live entertainment of any U.S. airline. JetBlue operates one of America’s youngest airline fleets, with 175 Airbus and EMBRAER aircraft. At JFK Airport, JetBlue operates from its acclaimed 26-gate Terminal 5, while Emirates operates from the adjacent Terminal 4, allowing for fast and easy connections between flights.
