Hawaiian Airlines and JetBlue announced the signing of new codeshare and frequent flyer agreements May 30, offering East Coast travelers expanded access to the Islands and more chances to earn loyalty points with each carrier.

“We are pleased to see our partnership with Hawaiian continue to blossom, and we look forward to sharing our home at [New York's Kennedy Airport],” Scott Resnick, JetBlue’s director of alliances and partnerships, said in a statement.

Hawaiian will begin daily, nonstop service between Honolulu and Kennedy June 5, where it will share JetBlue’s Terminal 5.

The two airlines announced an interline agreement in January.

Beginning June 5, JetBlue’s TrueBlue members can earn one loyalty point for every two miles flown on eligible Hawaiian flights, while HawaiianMiles members will be able to earn points on eligible JetBlue flights.
