JetBlue and Icelandair have started a frequent-flier partnership that will allow customers to earn points on the other airline’s flights. The carriers made the announcement today and JetBlue sent out emails with an offer to celebrate this new partnership.
JetBlue customers wishing to receive TrueBlue Points on Icelandair flights will receive 1 point for every 2 miles flown in economy and 1 point per mile for tickets booked in Icelandair’s Economy Comfort class. Fliers buying Icelandair’s “Saga Class” business-class seats will receive 1.25 points per dollar. JetBlue customers will receive a minimum of 500 points per Icelandair flight, though the points will not count toward elite status on JetBlue.
On the other hand, Icelandair says points earned by its customers flying on JetBlue will count toward elite status in its Saga Club loyalty program. Icelandair Saga Club will earn both Saga Points and Card Points when flying with JetBlue. Saga Silver members get 10% bonus on the Card Points and Saga Gold members get 20% bonus on the Card Points.
For a limited time, you can earn double TrueBlue points on Icelandair. Just be sure to enter your TrueBlue number when you book your Icelandair flight for travel through 7/7/17. Though JetBlue’s website suggests customers who’ve flown Icelandair after April 3 can request credit.
IcelandAir is also offering Saga Club members Double Saga Points when flying on JetBlue from May 4 until July 7, 2017. TrueBlue members of JetBlue will also earn TrueBlue points for Icelandair flights.
The frequent-flier pact expands on an existing codeshare partnership already in place between the two carriers.
