Conditions for Saga Club Membership

Individuals, 12 years of age or older, are eligible for membership. Corporations, organisations and/or other entities are not eligible for membership. In applying for membership the applicant authorizes Icelandair to use all stored information for marketing and public relations purposes.

Applicants must provide full name to participate in the Saga Club program. Full name means the given name, middle initial or middle name, if any, and family or surname. The full name must be the same as the name on the member's passport or other valid travel document (i.e. Visa, Resident Alien Card, etc.).

An application will only be accepted if it is fully completed. All applications and notifications of change of address or names must be signed by the applicant/member.

Members may only hold one points account. A member may resign from the program at any time by sending written notice to Icelandair Saga Club along with his or her card, cut in half. All accumulated points will then be cancelled. Notice that each email address can only be assigned to one member.

The Points Award System

  • Two kinds of points are given: Saga Points and Card Points. 
  • Saga Points are used to obtain travel, accommodation or car rental awards. 
  • Card Points determine entitlement to membership of Saga Silver or Saga Gold.
  • No child discount is on upgrade with points.

The Saga Cards

Saga Blue card is sent to members after their first Icelandair flight activity has been registered to their Saga Club account. Saga Club members who earn 40,000 Card Points within a 12 month period are upgraded to Saga Silver.

Saga Silver members must earn 30,000 Card Points within a 12 month period for membership to be renewed. Saga Silver members who earn 80,000 Card Points within a 12 month period are automatically upgraded to Saga Gold.

Saga Gold members must earn 70,000 Card Points within a 12 month period for membership to be renewed.

Name change requests cannot be processed over the phone. A copy of supporting legal documentation (e.g., court order) must be submitted by fax/mail and will be required for any name change requests.

Earning Points

All Icelandair, Alaska Airlines and Jet Blue scheduled flights give both Saga Points and Card Points. The member who flies with Icelandair earns the points regardless who pays for the ticket. Only tickets indicating a published fare give points. In the case of an upgrade, points are given based on the booked and paid class, not the upgraded class.

Points are given for completed travel. No points are given for tickets that are purchased but not used. Icelandair may add service partners to the program. Services of partners specified in the current points table give Saga Points, but not Card Points.
