Emirates and Icelandair sign a codeshare agreement

Icelandair and Emirates have signed a Codeshare Agreement that will allow customers to seamlessly travel across the two airlines' networks, opening new and exciting travel corridors. The flights will be available for sale from 1st September 2024, subject to securing regulatory approvals.

The agreement will greatly increase both airlines' offerings for convenient connections where customers can travel on a single ticket and have their luggage checked through all the way to the final destination. Icelandair passengers in North America and Iceland can connect eastbound via Emirates' network to Dubai; and Emirates worldwide passengers can connect westbound via Icelandair's network to Iceland. Icelandair and Emirates expect to further develop and expand the partnership in the future.

Bogi Nils Bogason, Icelandair president and CEO:

"We are very pleased to announce Emirates, the largest airline in the Middle East, as our 7th global airline codeshare partner. We have and will continue to expand our network of partner airlines, focusing on working with airlines that offer great service and connectivity. Emirates' extensive network will open exciting and convenient travel opportunities for our customers and we very much look forward to the expanded cooperation."

Adnan Kazim, Emirates' Deputy President and Chief Commercial Officer commented:

"We're pleased to partner with Icelandair and offer our customers access to new and exciting destinations beyond our own network. Iceland is an incredibly popular destination with stunning natural landscapes, making the island an aspirational destination for leisure travellers. We look forward to our new partnership with Icelandair and are positive it will grow further to offer even more connectivity and options for travellers."
