Icelandair and JetBlue extend and strengthen cooperation

Icelandair has renewed an agreement with the US airline JetBlue on the airline’s scheduled flights. This is a partnership agreement which means that both airlines can sell and issue airline tickets with each other. Thus, Icelandair customers can purchase a ticket from Iceland to a number of JetBlue’s destinations in the US, the Caribbean, Central and South America. At the same time, JetBlue customers are able to purchase tickets to Iceland and many of Icelandair’s destinations in Europe.

The agreement between Icelandair and JetBlue, which first came into effect in 2011, has now been renewed until 2024. Since 2017, the airlines have also offered their customers the opportunity to collect loyalty points from both companies.

In other news, Icelandair has painted its Boeing 757-256 TF-FIS in a special National Geographic livery for NG’s around-the-world luxury 2020 tours.

ABOUT THE JET

Well suited for this incredible journey, a Boeing 757 provides unparalleled flexibility with its long-range capabilities and ability to land in smaller airports. Flying direct and avoiding layovers, we are able to maximize our time in each destination while delivering a superior travel experience. Instead of the standard 233 seats, the jet’s interior has been customized to accommodate just 75 passengers in two-by-two, VIP-style leather seating. You’ll enjoy excellent access to experts and staff, who provide informative briefings and lectures throughout the expedition.
