Direct flights from Seattle to Reykjavik announced by Icelandair

Icelandair has recently announced it is offering a new direct flight service to and from Seattle, USA, and Reykjavik, Iceland, as part of its summer schedule.

Iceland’s leading airline, Icelandair, is offering four direct flights a week departing from Seattle’s Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) at 16:30, arriving in Keflavik International Airport at 06:45, the following morning. These flights, scheduled on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, will 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,” commented Thorsteinn Egilsson, General Manager – The Americas. “We also look forward to partnering with Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in serving all westward travellers, including the large Scandinavian population of the Pacific Northwest.”

Furthermore, 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 its newest Mileage Plan and codeshare partner,” said 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.”

Icelandair continues to offer its service to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Minneapolis/St. Paul (seasonal), Orlando Sanford (seasonal), Halifax (seasonal) and Toronto (seasonal). Connections through Icelandair’s hub in Reykjavik 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).
