New Partnership with Blade Further Enhances Loyalty Program’s Growing List of Benefits
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–JetBlue® (NASDAQ: JBLU) today announced it is adding all-new benefits to the airline’s award-winning TrueBlue® loyalty program, which expand available perks to even more aspects of the broader travel experience. These benefits are aimed at bringing even more value to JetBlue’s loyalty program by offering customers new and convenient choices when making their way to or from the airport when flying with JetBlue.
“We know the JetBlue journey starts long before our customers step aboard one of our flights, which is why we are making more of the entire travel experience even easier and even more rewarding,” said, Chris Buckner, vice president of loyalty & partnerships, JetBlue. “This partnership will help us further evolve and enhance our TrueBlue program so our most loyal customers can enjoy more perks more often.”
Fly Away with Blade
Blade provides helicopter airport transfers between Manhattan and John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). Journey times to both JFK and EWR can take as little as five minutes from Manhattan’s Midtown heliports.
Available now, Mosaic+ members will receive credits that are redeemable for complimentary seats on Blade airport helicopter transfers through the new partnership, when connecting to or from JetBlue flights. Credits can also be used for a Mosaic+ member’s eligible travel companions.
Starting July 1, Mosaic members will receive 25% off their first-ever Blade Airport trip and TrueBlue members will receive 10% off their first trip when connecting to or from JetBlue flights.
“We look forward to enabling loyal JetBlue fliers to fly between the city and area airports in as little as five minutes,” said Melissa Tomkiel, Blade’s President. “Given its New York City roots JetBlue is an ideal partner as we continue to ramp up our Blade Airport service to six days a week and up to thirteen hours per day in New York City.”
JetBlue becomes the only U.S. airline to offer an airport transfer partnership of this kind and will provide TrueBlue members access to Blade through 2023.
