JetBlue and Icelandair to team up
In a press conference Monday, low-cost carrier JetBlue and Icelandair, the flagship carrier of Iceland, announced a new interline partnership that will provide easier connections for passengers connecting between JetBlue's U.S. and Caribbean destinations and Icelandair's Scandinavia, U.K., and Continental Europe destinations.
Customers will be able to book one ticket for JetBlue and Icelandair flights with one-stop check-in and baggage transfer between the two carriers. Customers can start booking tickets under the new agreement later this week.
Commenting on the news, Helgi Mar Bjorgvinsson, Icelandair's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing said: "Icelandair and JetBlue share many of the same philosophies and place the customer's experience in the highest regard."
"We're pleased to welcome Icelandair to the JetBlue network as our tenth partner airline," said Scott Resnick,
JetBlue's director of airline partnerships. "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."
