Icelandair announces onward transatlantic flights to Canada for Scandinavia travelers


This summer, in cooperation with Alaska Airlines, Icelandair is providing connecting flights to Canada from Seattle, for those flying from Scandinavia. Onward flight connections will include Canadian cities Victoria, Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary and Edmonton. These convenient connections will be conducted at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seattle, Washington, USA.

“We look forward to partnering with Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in serving all westward travelers, including the large Scandinavian population of the Pacific Northwest,” stated Thorsteinn Egilsson, General Manager at Icelandair, The Americas.

Icelandair will also be offering return flights from Seattle to Keflavik International Airport, Iceland, with connecting flights to Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and London. This offers up to 4 hours faster connection times from Seattle to Scandinavia and Europe than possible through other European hubs.

In addition, Icelandair has entered a new codeshare agreement with both Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air, of which will include a reciprocal frequent flyer partnership. 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 their 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.”

The airline continues to provide flights to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Minneapolis/St. Paul (seasonal), Orlando Sanford (seasonal), Halifax (seasonal) and Toronto (seasonal). Connections through Icelandair’s hub at Keflavik International Airport are available to 18 destinations in Scandinavia (including Copenhagen, Oslo, Stavanger, and Stockholm), UK (including London, Manchester) and Continental Europe (including Amsterdam, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich, and Paris).
