A new partnership: Icelandair and Emirates

At Icelandair, we’re always looking for new ways to deliver more and better travel opportunities to you. This time around, we're delighted to announce a new codeshare agreement between Icelandair and Emirates, which brings new connections and easier access to exciting destinations.

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 on September 1, 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.

The Emirates story started in 1985 when they launched operations with just two aircraft. Today, they fly the world’s biggest fleets of Airbus A380s and Boeing 777s. Based in Dubai, Emirates connects people all over the world to a network of over 150 destinations.


Bogi Nils Bogason, Icelandair President and CEO:

“We are very pleased to announce Emirates, the largest airline in the Middle East, as our seventh 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: 

“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 travelers. 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.”


We look forward to seeing you on board, and to exploring the new horizons that this partnership brings. Check out our partner airlines page to learn more about our codeshare agreements and other partnerships.
