JetBlue’s current codes on Icelandair offer customers direct flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK) Airport, Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS), Newark’s Liberty International Airport (EWR) and Iceland’s Keflavik International Airport (KEF) in the capital city of Reykjavik. As part of the codeshare expansion, the JetBlue “B6” code will initially be placed on seven of 24 European routes that Icelandair operates beyond Reykjavik. The plan is to add more in the near future. The initial routes are:
- Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS), Netherlands
- Copenhagen Airport (CPH), Denmark
- Glasgow Airport (GLA), United Kingdom
- Helsinki Airport (HEL), Finland
- Manchester Airport (MAN), United Kingdom
- Oslo Airport (OSL), Norway
- Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN), Sweden
This expanded codeshare agreement builds upon JetBlue and Icelandair’s partnership that first began in 2011. Icelandair passengers already benefit from access to a network that spans to 45 destinations in more than 15 countries around the world. This further strengthening of the partnership will allow JetBlue customers to enjoy additional travel options via Iceland’s Keflavik International Airport, Icelandair’s connecting hub.
