JetBlue and Icelandair Partner From North America Throughout Europe

JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU), New York*s hometown airline, and Icelandair, the flagship carrier of Iceland, today announced the launch of a new interline partnership at a ceremony in New York. The partnership opens up new travel opportunities for customers connecting between JetBlue*s network in the United States and the Caribbean and Icelandair destinations throughout Scandinavia, the United Kingdom, and Continental Europe.

Through this partnership, customers will now be able to book a single combined ticket for JetBlue and Icelandair-operated flights with one-stop check-in and baggage transfer between the two airlines. Customers may purchase JetBlue-Icelandair travel via travel agents, online, or through Icelandair*s reservations call center beginning later this week.

When connecting in the Americas, Icelandair customers will enjoy JetBlue*s award-winning service on flights from dozens of gateways including Chicago; Denver; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; and San Juan, Puerto Rico. JetBlue is the largest domestic airline in Boston and at New York/JFK, offering flights that feature all-leather seating, lots of legroom, in-flight entertainment at every seatback, and unlimited free snacks and drinks.

Icelandair offers three cabins of premium service featuring equally impressive new leather seats, personal in-flight entertainment and easy access to the popular destination of Reykjavik via Icelandair*s gateway cities of Boston, New York/JFK, and Washington/Dulles. Icelandair will expand service from Boston and New York/JFK to Reykjavik with twice-daily flights on June 1, 2011 and will launch non-stop service from Washington/Dulles to Reykjavik on May 17, 2011 making JetBlue connections the perfect complement.

Once in Iceland, Icelandair offers non-stop connections to destinations in Scandinavia, including Billund and Copenhagen, Denmark; Bergen and Oslo, Norway; Gothenburg and Stockholm, Sweden; Helsinki, Finland and other popular European cities including Amsterdam, Glasgow, London and Paris. Connecting passengers may also stopover in Iceland at no additional airfare to experience the natural beauty and many attractions in Iceland.

**Icelandair and JetBlue share many of the same philosophies and place the customer*s experience in the highest regard,** said Helgi Mar Bjorgvinsson, Icelandair*s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. **Our harmonious networks from New York, Boston and Washington, D.C. and like-minded customer service make this a natural partnership. Together we will open a new world of opportunities for customers traveling from the United States and the Caribbean to Iceland, Scandinavia, the United Kingdom and Continental Europe. We look forward to working together and strengthening our relationship into the future.**

**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.**
