"Economy Flex" passengers will receive similar benefits with flexible
cancellation, itinerary change and seat selection options as well as one-way
and combinable fares and additional Frequent Flyer points (50% more than
lowest economy fare).
"Economy" passengers will enjoy one-way and combinable fares, choice of

Price sensitive passengers will find the new one-way and combinable fares
particularly advantageous to their needs under the "Best Price" category,
which will still qualify for Frequent Flyer points. Occasional "Special

The new fare structure to and from Iceland will be uniform in all
Icelandair offices in the United States, Canada, Iceland, Scandinavia, Great
Britain and Continental Europe.
