“Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air are delighted to welcome Icelandair as our 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, Alaska Airlines, and Horizon Air announced they have entered into a new codeshare agreement and will also launch a reciprocal frequent flier partnership. The codeshare agreement allows Icelandair to place their code on select Alaska 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.
“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,” said 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.”
