JetBlue Airways and Icelandair have launched a new interline partnership, aimed at opening up new travel opportunities for customers connecting between JetBlue’s network in the United States and the Caribbean and Icelandair’s destinations throughout Scandinavia, the United Kingdom, and Continental Europe.
Through the partnership, customers will now be able to book a single combined ticket for JetBlue and Icelandair-operated flights with one-stop check-in and baggage transfer between the two airlines. Customers may purchase JetBlue-Icelandair combined travel via travel agents, online, or through Icelandair’s reservations call center.
In the Americas, Icelandair customers can connect with JetBlue Airways’ flights to and from dozens of gateways including Chicago; Denver; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
JetBlue Airways is the largest domestic airline in Boston and at New York JFK, offering flights that feature all-leather seating, an average of 32 inches of legroom, in-flight entertainment at every seatback, and unlimited free snacks and drinks.
Icelandair offers three cabins of premium service featuring leather seats, personal in-flight entertainment and easy access to Reykjavik via Icelandair’s gateway cities of Boston, New York/JFK, and Washington/Dulles. Icelandair will expand service from Boston and New York JFK to Reykjavik with twice-daily flights on June 1 and will launch non-stop service from Washington Dulles to Reykjavik on May 17.
In Iceland, Icelandair offers non-stop connections to destinations in Scandinavia, including Billund and Copenhagen, Denmark; Bergen and Oslo, Norway; Gothenburg and Stockholm, Sweden; Helsinki, Finland and other major European cities such as Amsterdam, Glasgow, London and Paris. Connecting passengers may also stop-over in Iceland at no additional airfare to experience Iceland’s attractions.
“Icelandair and JetBlue share many of the same philosophies and place the customer’s experience in the highest regard,” says Helgi Mar Bjorgvinsson, Icelandair’s senior vice president of sales and marketing. “Our harmonious networks from New York, Boston and Washington, D.C. and like-minded customer service make this a natural partnership. Together we will open a new world of opportunities for customers traveling from the United States and the Caribbean to Iceland, Scandinavia, the United Kingdom and Continental Europe. We look forward to working together and strengthening our relationship into the future.”
“We’re pleased to welcome Icelandair to the JetBlue network as our tenth partner airline,” says Scott Resnick, JetBlue’s director of airline partnerships. “With its reputation for quality service, a comfortable in-flight experience, and an impressive array of connections across Scandinavia and throughout Europe via Reykjavik, teaming up with Icelandair is a great win for customers.”
Icelandair offers non-stop service to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Seattle, and seasonal service from Washington, D.C., Minneapolis – St. Paul, Orlando Sanford, Halifax and Toronto. Connections through Icelandair’s hub at Keflavik International Airport are available to more than 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the U.K. and Continental Europe.
Icelandair’s three cabins of service include Economy, Economy Comfort and Saga. All cabins on Icelandair feature leather seats and in-flight entertainment centers, while Economy Comfort and Saga class offer two-by-two seating, premium meal service, Business Class check-in and lounge access, where available.
