On Tuesday (November 2, 2021), JetBlue announced an expansion of their codeshare partnership with Icelandair, the national carrier of Iceland. JetBlue’s current codes on Icelandair flights offer direct connections to Keflavik International Airport (KEF) in Reykjavik from New York (JFK), Boston (BOS) and Newark (EWR). With the codeshare expansion, JetBlue will initially place their ‘B6’ code on seven of 24 European routes serviced by Icelandair beyond Reykjavik, including Amsterdam (AMS), Copenhagen (CPH), Glasgow (GLA), Helsinki (HEL), Manchester (MAN), Oslo (OSL) and Stockholm Arlanda (ARN). Customers connecting between Icelandair and JetBlue will enjoy combined ticketing and baggage handling. Additionally, customers on transatlantic flights with Icelandair can enjoy a one to seven day interim stopover in Iceland at no additional cost.

In Tuesday’s announcement, JetBlue’s Chief Executive Officer, Robin Hayes, said,

“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Icelandair to offer our customers more options when traveling beyond Iceland. With our recent launch of services to London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports, this expansion with Icelandair provides customers even more choice for travel across the Atlantic and the ability to enjoy a stopover in Iceland en route.”

Also commenting on the expanded codeshare partnership, Icelandair’s Chief Executive Officer, Bogi Nils Bogason, said,

“This year marks the ten-year anniversary of our successful partnership with JetBlue, where we have been able to offer great connections and enhanced comfort for our customers. The similarities between our business models and a strong focus on customer experience means that we can offer complementary service throughout our networks. We are very pleased to expand our partnership and offer travelers new options for connecting between the two airlines’ networks.”

JetBlue and Icelandair’s partnership started in 2011, and Icelandair guests already benefit from a network that spans 45 destinations in over 15 countries. Since 2017, customers have also had the opportunity to accrue loyalty points from both JetBlue’s TrueBlue program and Icelandair’s Saga Club, and will soon have the ability to redeem points for both carriers’ flights.

Icelandair is the national carrier of Iceland and offers convenient connections, to, from, via and within Iceland. The carrier connects European and North American gateways using Iceland as a hub, streamlining North Atlantic travel. Icelandair also allows guests to make an interim stopover in Iceland at no additional airfare cost.

JetBlue is ‘New York’s Hometown Airline® and a leading carrier in Boston (BOS), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Los Angeles (LAX), Orlando (MCO) and San Juan (SJU). The airline carries guests to destinations across the U.S., Caribbean, Latin America and London (Heathrow and Gatwick). JetBlue Airways Corporation trades on the NASDAQ under the ticker symbol JBLU.
