NEW YORK (AP) - The CEO of JetBlue Airways Corp. expects closer ties with its partner carriers — including American Airlines.

JetBlue has so-called code-sharing deals with 23 airlines, mostly foreign ones. In most cases, JetBlue sells tickets on the other airline’s flights as if they were JetBlue flights, and the two share the revenue.

CEO Dave Barger said Monday that he looks forward to deepening and expanding the relationship with Fort Worth-based American. He didn’t elaborate.

American parent AMR Corp. in 2011 filed for bankruptcy protection. The company has agreed to merge with US Airways Group Inc.

The merger would make the new American stronger in the same East Coast markets where JetBlue thrives — such as New York, Boston and Florida.
