South African Airways (SAS) has developed an extended partnership with JetBlue Airways to increase options for those taking flights to South Africa and the US.

The new deal means that SAS will now code share on services on JetBlue flights to 20 cities across the US including New York and Washington.

“Customer response to the interline service between South African Airways and JetBlue has been overwhelmingly positive on both sides of the Atlantic. They appreciate the ease with which they can connect between these two award-winning airlines,” explained Marc Cavaliere, executive vice president, North America, for SAS.

Under the new plan, passengers in both South Africa and the US will now be able to check bags for the length of their whole journey, which will help improve overall travelling times.

SAS recently announced plans to operate non-stop flights to Johannesburg from New York starting on May 1st.
