Fly America Act

The Fly America Act requires employees of the U.S. Government, their dependents, consultants, contractors, grantees, and others performing work on behalf of the U.S. Government whose foreign air travel is financed by the U.S. Government to book their air travel under the provisions of the Fly America Act.

The Fly America Act permits travel on flights operated by foreign codeshare carriers provided the ticket shows the US flag carrier’s designated code. All Emirates flights operating from the US to Dubai and between New York (JFK) and Milan (MXP) operate with a jetBlue (B6) codeshare flight number and passengers that need to abide to the Fly America Act can therefore travel on these services. 

JetBlue is a participant of the GSA fare program and was awarded the following six international city pairs operated by Emirates:

  • Los Angeles – Dubai 
  • New York – Dubai 
  • Dallas – Dubai
  • Seattle – Dubai 
  • Houston – Dubai 
  • San Francisco – Dubai

Fly with Emirates and receive all of the benefits awarded to our passengers including Miles on either Emirates Skywards program or on jetBlue’s Trueblue program and Emirates’ complimentary Chauffeur-drive service for First Class and Business Class passengers. Please contact your travel agency or your Emirates Sales Executive in order to get complete program details.
