Established in 1937 as a small airline on the Northern coast of Iceland, Icelandair later merged with another minor carrier and adopted the current name for international markets in 1979. The fleet consists of Boeing 757 aircraft equipped with in flight entertainment, contemporary navigation and safety systems, and equipment that conforms to international environmental standards. In 2016, the airline added the Boeing 767 wide body craft for additional comfort on long haul flights, and intends to acquire the Boeing 737 MAX by 2018.

Icelandair prides itself on punctuality, placing second and first as Europe’s most punctual airline in 2011 and 2012 respectively. Today, the airline boasts an overall punctuality rating of 89%, with 10% of flights being delayed and 1% being cancelled.

  • Why Fly Icelandair?

    Saga Club Loyalty Program and Rewards

    Icelandair offers Saga Club loyalty, a rewards program that allows you to earn and redeem points with the airline and it’s partners in the hospitality industry.

    Saga points are earned on all Icelandair flights, on both your tickets and any purchases you make on board the aircraft. You can also earn with affiliates including Hertz car rental, Radisson hotels, Iceland Excursions, and more. Once you have accrued sufficient mileage, you can book free flights, use points as partial payment, and transfer miles to family and friends. Saga Club points can also be redeemed for outside perks such as Amazon gift cards and car rentals, or donated through Icelandair’s charitable program Special Children Travel Fund.

    The Saga Club rewards program is a tiered system, with privileges increasing through the Blue, Silver, and Gold levels. Saga Blue is the most basic card – this allows you to earn and redeem miles through the program. The Silver tier includes lounge access, upgrades, and baggage benefits, while Gold includes free on-board Wi-Fi and parking at Reykjavik’s Keflavik airport.

    Saga Points are earned with Icelandair and affiliates, while Card Points are earned only on scheduled Icelandair flights. The Saga Points can be redeemed for products, while the Card Points determine your tier within the program and relate only to privileges. For both, simply sign up online and start earning Saga Points and Card Points today.

    Online check in for all flights to and from Canada and Europe opens 36 hours before scheduled departure, and 24 hours in advance for those to and from the USA. With the exception of Belfast and Aberdeen, online check in is available for all destinations. If your flight is departing from North America, you will have to visit the airport check in desk to collect your boarding pass.

    You are also welcome to check in when you arrive at the airport, at the airline desk or one of the self-serve kiosks at participating airports. In Canada, self-serve check in is available at Edmonton, Montreal, and Vancouver International airports.

    If you have booked directly with Icelandair, you can request specific seats in the My Trips page on the website. Once your flight is open for online check in, you are also able to select your seats at that time.

    A ticket in Economy Light, Economy Standard, and Economy Flex offers a comfortable seat with 32” of legroom. Those in Economy Comfort Special and Economy Comfort have 33”, while those in Saga Class receive a full 40” of legroom. To purchase a seat with extra legroom you must upgrade the class of your ticket, however, you are welcome to fly each leg of your journey in a different class if you so desire.

    A ticket in Economy Light or Economy Standard allows you to bring one piece of carry on luggage weighing up to 10kg, as well as one small personal item. For those in Economy Comfort and Saga Class, you may bring an additional piece of carry on luggage, not to exceed 10kg. The total dimensions of a single piece of carry on luggage cannot be larger than 115 cm.

A ticket in Saga Class allows you to bring two checked bags up to 32kg each, while those who qualify as Silver and Gold members are invited to bring one additional checked bag free of charge.

Up to four kennels are allowed on each flight, although two small animals of the same species can travel together in a kennel. The combined weight of the pet and carrier cannot exceed 40kg.
