Icelandair announces four direct flights from Seattle to Reykjavik


Iceland’s flagship airline, Icelandair, is now providing four direct flights from Seattle, U.S., to Reykjavik, Iceland, a week.

Icelandair has scheduled direct flights from Seattle’s Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) to Keflavik International Airport departing every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. These flights are to depart at 16:30 in Seattle and arrive in Keflavik at 06:45.

The flights from Seattle will then connect with Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm and London, offering up to 4 hours faster connection times from Seattle to Scandinavia than possible through other European hubs. Flights to Helsinki, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Paris will also be available via Reykjavik.

“Icelandair is pleased to now offer more choices to Europe’s top destinations from Seattle,” stated Thorsteinn Egilsson, General Manager - The Americas. “We also look forward to partnering with Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in serving all westward travelers, including the large Scandinavian population of the Pacific Northwest.”

Additionally, a new reciprocal frequent flier partnership between Icelandair, Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air has been established, as well as a new codeshare agreement. This codeshare agreement will allow Icelandair to place its 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 its newest Mileage Plan and codeshare partner,” commented 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.”

Connections through Icelandair’s hub in Reykjavik are still available to eighteen destinations in Scandinavia (including Copenhagen, Oslo, Stavanger, and Stockholm), UK (including London, Manchester) and Continental Europe (including Amsterdam, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich, and Paris). Icelandair also continues to offer its service to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Minneapolis/St. Paul (seasonal), Orlando Sanford (seasonal), Halifax (seasonal) and Toronto (seasonal).
