Pack Less, Pay Less with Icelandair



REYKJAVIK, Iceland, Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Icelandair released a new pricing structure giving passengers more fare options when booking travel. The newest fare level, Economy Light, will reward passengers who travel with less, while providing the same on-board service and amenities Icelandair passengers have grown to expect. Economy Light passengers will be able to pre-select their seats in the same Economy Cabin as other passengers, with an allowance of up to 10kg (22lbs) of carry-on luggage included.

Pack Less, Pay Less with Icelandair

"We are making some progressive changes in our service and among those is Economy Light. This option is designed for travellers taking a short weekend getaway or a quick business trip abroad. The new fare is also perfect when traveling with family members that don´t require additional luggage such as children or couples who can pack together. These passengers will enjoy the same quality of service from Icelandair including in-flight entertainment, non-alcoholic beverages, gate-to-gate wi-fi access and comfortable, spacious seats," says Guðmundur Óskarsson SVP of Sales & Marketing.

As part of the new structure, Icelandair Economy Class will become Economy Standard, and Icelandair Economy Class Flex will become Economy Flex.  Both these fares still offer competitive pricing and greater flexibility, along with one checked bag and one carry-on bag included.

"We are widening our product options and meeting the various needs of our passengers. This will make traveling more flexible and affordable and better serve the many different types of travellers who fly with us," says Oskarsson.

Icelandair has been in operation since 1937 and celebrates its 80th anniversary this year. As an aviation pioneer, Icelandair continues to grow by adding new aircraft to its modern fleet, more destinations and popular amenities including over 600 hours of personal in-flight entertainment and gate-to-gate Wi-Fi access available on all routes. Today, the company flies to 20 North American gateways and more than 25 cities in Europe. It´s projected that Icelandair will transport four million passengers in 2017.
