JetBlue Airways has expanded its codeshare agreement with Iceland’s flag carrier Icelandair to facilitate connections between Europe and North America for travellers.

Passengers can now book the new codeshare flights from the website of JetBlue.

The current codes of JetBlue on Icelandair provide direct flights between New York’s John F Kennedy (JFK) Airport, Newark’s Liberty International Airport (EWR), Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) and Iceland’s Keflavik International Airport (KEF).

Under the codeshare expansion, the JetBlue ‘B6’ code will be at first available for seven of 24 European courses that Icelandair runs beyond Reykjavik.

Additional routes will be included in the codeshare expansion programme in the future.

The primary routes comprise Denmark’s Copenhagen Airport (CPH), the Netherlands’ Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS), the UK’s Glasgow Airport (GLA), Finland’s Helsinki Airport (HEL), the UK’s Manchester Airport (MAN), Norway’s Oslo Airport (OSL) and Sweden’s Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN).

Passengers opting for connecting flights between JetBlue and Icelandair will be able to combine ticketing, as well as transfer their baggage.

Furthermore, while flying on Icelandair across the Atlantic, customers can make a stop in Iceland without any extra cost by choosing a stopover duration ranging from one to seven days.

Icelandair CEO 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 mean that we can offer complimentary service throughout our networks. We are very pleased to expand our partnership and offer travellers new options for connecting between the two airlines’ networks.”

Both the airlines have been in an alliance since 2011.

In September, JetBlue announced its transition to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) through a ten-year offtake agreement with bioenergy developer SG Preston.
