Interest income from cash equivalents of $0.4 million and $0.5 million were recorded in interest income in the condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively, and $6 thousand and $18 thousand for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively.
As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, restricted cash on the condensed consolidated balance sheets represents amounts held by financial institutions to establish a standby letter of credit required by the lessor of certain corporate office space. In addition, as of June 30, 2022, restricted cash also included $25.3 million related to cash received from customers for Air Partner jet cards. Air Partner jet cards do not have an expiration date and are refundable upon demand by the customer. As such, we are contractually and legally restricted from using Air Partner jet card deposits.

The entire disclosure for cash and cash equivalent footnotes, which may include the types of deposits and money market instruments, applicable carrying amounts, restricted amounts and compensating balance arrangements. Cash and equivalents include: (1) currency on hand (2) demand deposits with banks or financial institutions (3) other kinds of accounts that have the general characteristics of demand deposits (4) short-term, highly liquid investments that are both readily convertible to known amounts of cash and so near their maturity that they present insignificant risk of changes in value because of changes in interest rates. Generally, only investments maturing within three months from the date of acquisition qualify.
