*Icelandair has phased out this class from April 5, 2018. If you have booked a ticket in Economy Comfort prior to this date, you will receive a seat upgrade to Saga Premium on board. Please note that there is no change to your ticket’s baggage allowance and terms and conditions.

**If members are traveling in Economy the extra bag may weigh up to 50 lbs (23 kg). If traveling in Saga Premium the extra bag may weigh up to 70 lbs (32 kg).

***Passengers traveling with children aged 2 to 11 years old may bring on board an approved child seat if the child sits in the chair during the flight.

You do not need to pick up your bags in Keflavik: if you are flying with Icelandair from North America to Europe via Keflavik (or vice versa), your reservation is on one ticket, you have checked in your bags to your final destination, and the stop in Iceland is less than 12 hours.

Your carry-on bag must fit in the overhead bin.  

Maximum dimensions: 21.6 x 15.7 x 7.8 inches (55 x 40 x 20 cm), including handles and wheels. The maximum weight is 22 lb (10 kg).

Proper packing

Icelandair may refuse to accept an item as checked baggage unless it is properly packed in a suitcase or other suitable container to ensure safe carriage with ordinary care and handling. If a passenger decides to check in baggage that is not properly packed, it is considered to be done at their own risk. Icelandair will not be held liable for any issues arising from lack of proper packing.

Please see here for detailed packing instructions.

Travelling with multiple airlines

If your travel arrangements include more than one airline, other baggage allowances may apply. Extra bags must be purchased at the airport upon check-in (they cannot be purchased online). This may also affect fees applied, and any duty-free purchases that you make on your journey. 

Please study the baggage allowances of our codeshare and interline partners carefully, as well as the information on your ticket.
