If all goes as planned and the partnership takes effect next year, it would boost both traffic and average fares.

“Norwegian shares our belief that customers benefit when we bring competition and low fares to the transatlantic market currently dominated by joint ventures, legacy alliances, and sky-high ticket prices,” JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes said in a statement.
