South African Airways & JetBlue (USA) entered into a bilateral codeshare agreement

(update 18 Dec 2013): South African Airways' codeshare partner JetBlue issued a press release on 16 Dec 2013, in which the airline announces the begin of the codeshare operations of the two airlines.

South Africa's flag carrier, South African Airways, and US airline JetBlue have entered into a bilateral codeshare agreement to seamlessly connect the carriers' networks via New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Washington's Dulles International Airport (IAD). The partnership is an expansion of an interline agreement first inked in 2010 and will allow customers to purchase a single ticket combining South African Airways- and JetBlue-operated flights.
JetBlue Airways intends to place its "B6" code on South African Airways-operated flights between the US and both Johannesburg, South Africa, and Dakar, Senegal, as well as on connecting flights to select destinations beyond Johannesburg, including Cape Town, Durban, East London and Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Tickets will be available for sale as soon as authorities in the US and South Africa have approved the agreement between the two airines.
South African Airways has had a similar arrangement in place with JetBlue Airways since 2011, placing its "SA" code on JetBlue-operated flights from its US gateways to top destinations including Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Fort Lauderdale and Orlando.
