Last week the European Commission approved the merger of Austrian Airlines with German flag carrier Lufthansa. Austrian Airlines will be integrated into Lufthansa this month. The German airline also announced on Monday that it has signed a codeshare agreement with JetBlue. If the deal is approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation, JetBlue passengers traveling via New York City's J.F.K. International Airport or Boston's Logan International will be able to connect to Lufthansa flights bound for Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
