JetBlue has announced an expansion of its codeshare agreement with Icelandair. Under the expanded codeshare, JetBlue’s ‘B6’ code will be placed on seven of Icelandair’s 24 European routes.
Currently JetBlue is codesharing on direct flights between New York JFK, Boston Logan International, and Newark Liberty International airports, and Iceland’s Keflavik International airport in Reykjavik.
The new arrangement adds the JetBlue code to flights Icelandair operates to these European destinations:
- Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Netherlands
- Copenhagen Airport, Denmark
- Glasgow Airport, UK
- Manchester Airport, UK
- Helsinki Airport, Finland
- Oslo Airport, Norway
- Stockholm Arlanda Airport, Sweden
In addition to these seven Icelandair routes, the carriers have plans to add more destinations in the near future.
The codeshare gives customers traveling on connecting flights between the two carriers the ability to combine ticketing and baggage transfers. Soon they will also be able to redeem points on either carriers’ flights. Customers can accrue loyalty points from both loyalty programs, something they’ve been able to do since 2017. The two airlines’ partnership was first launched in 2011.
“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,” said Icelandair CEO, Bogi Nils Bogason.
“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,” he added.
