JetBlue and Lyft are partnering in a new arrangement that will allow travelers to earn JetBlue loyalty rewards for using Lyft. With direction integration into the JetBlue mobile app and a new drop-off zone at Terminal 5 at New York's JFK airport, travelers can now manage their journey from door to door, all while enjoying rewards for the convenience.
To kick off the new partnership, new users who sign up will receive either 750 TrueBlue points or a $15 ride credit. In addition, Lyft members will be able to enjoy plenty of future promotions and discounts. By linking their Lyft and JetBlue accounts, users can earn 30 TrueBlue points for qualifying airport rides, and users can earn up to 1,200 TrueBlue points per year when using Lyft to go to and from the airport.
JetBlue and Lyft are partnering to attract the frequent business traveler who wants things as simple as possible by eliminating the need to switch apps while in a hurry and on the go. Though the new partnership is sure to please business and pleasure travelers alike, it's not the first of its kind. In 2014, Uber and United Airlines inked a partnership and linked the apps for easier and smoother traveling.
