Icelandair and JetBlue team up for flights from U.S. to Iceland and Europe
Icelandair, Iceland’s flagship airline, and JetBlue Airways recently joined forces in order to provide flights from JetBlue’s network in the United States and the Caribbean to Icelandair’s main hub in Iceland and its numerous destinations across Scandinavia, the United Kingdom and Continental Europe.
The new Icelandair-JetBlue partnership will allow customers to book a single ticket for JetBlue and Icelandair-operated flights with one-stop check-in and baggage transfer between the two airlines. JetBlue-Icelandair tickets will be available to purchase via travel agents, online, and through Icelandair’s reservations call center which will be launched later this week.
Icelandair’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Helgi Mar Bjorgvinsson, “Icelandair and JetBlue share many of the same philosophies and place the customer’s experience in the highest regard. 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.”
JetBlue’s director of airline partnerships, Scott Resnick added, “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 three cabins; Economy, Economy Class, and Business Class, each featuring equally impressive new leather seats and a personal in-flight entertainment system. Icelandair’s service offers easy access to the popular destination of Reykjavik via the airline’s gateway cities of Boston, New York/JFK, and Washington/Dulles. Icelandair will expand its service from Boston and New York/JFK to Reykjavik with twice-daily flights on June 1, 2011 and will launch a non-stop service from Washington/Dulles to Reykjavik on May 17, 2011 making JetBlue connections the perfect complement.
Once passengers have arrived 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 popular European cities including Amsterdam, Glasgow, London and Paris. In addition, connecting passengers may also stopover in Iceland at no additional airfare to experience the natural beauty and many attractions in Iceland.
