JetBlue Airways and Icelandair have announced a new interline partnership to open up new travel opportunities for customers connecting between JetBlue’s network in the United States and the Caribbean and Icelandair destinations throughout Scandinavia, the United Kingdom, and continental Europe.
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.
When connecting in the Americas, Icelandair customers will enjoy JetBlue service on flights from gateways including Chicago; Denver; Fort Lauderdale, FL; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Icelandair offers easy access to Reykjavik via its gateway airports of Boston Logan, New York JFK, and Washington Dulles. The carrier will expand service from Boston and New York JFK to Reykjavik with twice-daily flights on 1 June 2011 and will launch non-stop service from Washington Dulles to Reykjavik on 17 May 2011 making JetBlue connections “the perfect complement”, says JetBlue.
Once at Reykjavik, 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 popular European cities including Amsterdam, Glasgow, London and Paris. Connecting passengers may also stopover in Iceland at no additional airfare to experience the natural beauty and attractions in Iceland.
