Ireland's Aer Lingus forms alliance with JetBlue

DUBLIN, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Ireland’s Aer Lingus AERL.I said on Tuesday it planned to form a strategic alliance with U.S. airline JetBlue (JBLU.O), forming what it said was the world’s first tie-up between two international low-cost carriers.

“The partnership will significantly extend Aer Lingus’ reach into North America,” the Dublin-based airline said in a statement. “Customers will now be able to make just one booking which will allow them to travel from Ireland to the U.S. and onto a direct Jet Blue flight to 51 destinations.”

Those destinations were across the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean, it added.
