Icelandair to launch codeshare with JetBlue

JetBlue code would be placed on Nordic routes.

Iceland’s main airline Icelandair and American low-cost carrier JetBlue Airways, based in New York, have filed an application with the US government to launch a bilateral codeshare partnership that would create easy connections between the two airlines’ networks.
Passengers would be able to benefit from combined ticketing and baggage transfer when connecting between the two carriers. The airlines have already been partnering on an interline basis since 2011.
Under the proposed codeshare, the JetBlue “B6” code would be placed on seven Icelandair routes between the US and Reykjavik’s Keflavik International Airport as well as on eight routes to Scandinavia and continental Europe available non-stop via Reykjavik, including Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo and Helsinki.
The Icelandair “FI” code would be placed on JetBlue flights to allow connections beyond JetBlue’s focus cities Boston and New York JFK to Austin, Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, Michigan, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Orlando, Newark, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh, Raleigh-Durham, San Francisco, Tampa and Washington DC.
