Blind Passengers with Seeing-Eye Dogs
A blind passenger may be accompanied by a seeing-eye dog in the cabin provided that the dog is properly harnessed and muzzled. The dog is not permitted to occupy a seat and must not block the aisle. Permits must be obtained for entry into the country of transit and/or destination where necessary. Icelandair cannot be responsible if the seeing-eye dog is refused entry or passage through any country.
Expectant mothers must be in possession of a medical certificate not issued earlier than 72 hours prior to the commencement of travel if they are in their last month of pregnancy.
Icelandair provides passengers with reduced mobility, services in accordance with the IATA agreed categories. The agreed categories that Icelandair provides are:
- WCHR (Wheelchair to Ramp): The passenger requires a wheelchair to move the distance to and from the aircraft and entrance, but can ascend/descend steps and is able to move to and from the cabin seat.
- WCHS (Wheelchair to Steps): The passenger requires a wheelchair to move the distance to and from the aircraft and entrance, is unable to ascend/descend steps and must be carried up to/down from the aircraft. The passenger is, however, able to move to and from the cabin seat.
If the passenger requires further wheelchair assistance, please contact your nearest Icelandair Sales Office and specify the extent of the assistance required, whether the passenger is traveling with his/her own wheelchair and if it is electric.

Icelandair’s Allergy Policy
Icelandair cannot guarantee an allergen-free environment on board our aircraft. Therefore we strongly encourage passengers with severe allergies that can result in anaphylaxis to bring an epinephrine auto-injector (EpiPen®) and any other medications they may need.
The meals offered on Icelandair flights do not contain peanuts or peanut products, such as peanut butter, although trace elements from peanuts may be found in meals.
In addition, tree nuts (e.g., almonds) may be found in meals on board, and fish and shellfish are sometimes on offer in Saga Class. Unfortunately, it‘s not possible to remove tree nuts, fish, or shellfish from the cabin.
In the case of severe peanut allergy, our cabin crew can make an allergy announcement on board asking other passengers on the flight not to consume foods that contain peanuts. Please contact Icelandair customer support at +354 50 50 100 and submit a doctor´s certificate at least 48 hours before departure to request an allergy announcement (please note this is only available on weekdays).
We do, however, wish to stress that Icelandair can in no way restrict other passengers from bringing or consuming their own food on the aircraft, and this may contain peanuts or other allergens. For that reason, it’s possible to find traces of peanuts on seat cushions, armrests, tray tables, or elsewhere in the cabin.
