Carriers will collaborate on networks in Europe and north America
EasyJet and IcelandAir agree Worldwide connections platform partnership
Icelandair is the latest carrier to join the Worldwide by easyJet flights connections platform.
The partnership will allow passengers to connect between easyJet flights across the budget airline’s European network and onwards across Icelandair routes in Europe and to North America.
The arrangement is expected to commence in the coming weeks when market conditions allow at major European airports.
Icelandair chief executive Bogi Nils Bogason said: “We are very pleased to add easyJet to our portfolio of airline partners and provide their customers with easy access to our extensive network in Europe and North America.
“At the same time, the partnership further strengthens our route network and revenue stream as we begin to see the travel industry gaining momentum after a challenging start to the year.”
EasyJet chief executive Johan Lundgren added: “We are really pleased to welcome Icelandair as an easyJet Worldwide partner airline.
“Tens of millions of connecting passengers travel each year with journeys which begin or end in Europe.
“We are confident this addition to Worldwide will be very popular with our customers who are looking for a seamless way to connect between Europe and North America.”
