JetBlue has expanded its partnership with Icelandair, established in 2011, to offers its B6 code on flights operated by Icelandair between five JetBlue cities and Reykjavik-Keflavík International Airport (KEF).
Passengers travelling between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport, Orlando International Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and Icelandair’s base in Reykjavik can purchase tickets directly with JetBlue. The partnership offers customers the convenience of one-stop check-in and baggage transfers on a single ticket.
“Visiting Iceland’s natural landscapes from JetBlue’s extensive East Coast network is as simple as visiting jetblue.com,” stated Marty St. George, executive vice president of commercial and planning at JetBlue. “Our combined presence in these key cities means that JetBlue along with Icelandair will be able to provide more seamless travel options than ever before to destinations across the US and abroad.”
In the future, JetBlue’s B6 code will be placed on additional Icelandair routes between the US and Reykjavik and on flights beyond Iceland to select destinations in Scandinavia and Continental Europe.
“This is an important milestone for Icelandair and will open up new opportunities for those traveling to Iceland and beyond,” averred Birkir Holm Gudnason, Icelandair’s CEO. “Our like-minded business models and customer amenities will offer uniformed service throughout our networks. We are pleased to welcome JetBlue aboard.”
