Icelandair, Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air have entered into a new codeshare agreement and will also launch a reciprocal frequent-flyer partnership.
The codeshare agreement allows Icelandair to place its ‘FI’ code on select Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air flights. The frequent flier partnership, scheduled to launch this fall, allows Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members to earn and redeem miles on Icelandair flights between Seattle and Iceland and throughout Europe.
“Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air are delighted to welcome Icelandair as our newest Mileage Plan and codeshare partner,” says Rick Rasmussen, Alaska Airlines’ director of customer loyalty and marketing programs. “Icelandair offers affordable and convenient options for our customers to earn or redeem miles for travel to Iceland and beyond through their easy connections to popular European destinations.”
“As we celebrate one year of service from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, we are pleased to strengthen the bridge for West Coast travelers wanting to explore Europe,” says Thorsteinn Egilsson, Icelandair’s general manager for the Americas. “Alaska Airlines’ route network complements passengers connecting through Seattle on Icelandair. With nonstop service to Reykjavik, Iceland, and connections to over 20 of Europe’s most popular destinations, our passengers can stop over in our beautiful homeland of Iceland for no additional airfare.”
Icelandair customers can now book travel from Reykjavik, Iceland, throughout Alaska’s network. Flights are available for purchase online at icelandair.us, icelandair.ca or by calling 1-800-223-5500.
Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air, subsidiaries of Alaska Air Group, together serve more than 90 cities through an expansive network in Alaska, the Lower 48, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico.
Icelandair, Iceland’s national carrier, offers service to Iceland from Boston, New York-Kennedy Airport, Seattle, and seasonal service from Minneapolis-St. Paul, Orlando, Fla., and Halifax and Toronto, Canada with a fleet of 14 Boeing 757-200s and one 757-300. (The airline also operates five Boeing 757-200PF package freighters.) Connections through Icelandair’s hub at Keflavik International Airport are available to more than 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the United Kingdom and Continental Europe. Only Icelandair allows passengers to stop over in Iceland at no additional airfare.
