JetBlue Airways (New York) and Icelandair have filed an application with the U.S. Government to enter into a bilateral codeshare partnership that will offer customers easy connections between the two airlines’ networks with a focus on gateways in Boston, New York/JFK and Reykjavik.

Customers will enjoy combined ticketing and baggage transfer when connecting between the two carriers. Both airlines offer personal in-flight entertainment, comfortable leather seating, and best-in-class customer service. Flights will become available for sale pending regulatory approval.

Under the proposed codeshare, the JetBlue ‘B6’ code will be placed on seven Icelandair routes between the U.S. and Reykjavik’s Keflavik International Airport (KEF), and eight routes to Scandinavia and Continental Europe available non-stop via Icelandair’s Reykjavik hub (subject to receipt of government operating authority):
