Latvia-based AirBaltic and Iceland’s flag-carrier Icelandair have come to terms in a codeshare agreement.

By connecting our networks, we will offer our passengers more options of travelling to the Baltics and Eastern Europe and, in turn, provide airBaltic customers with valuable connections to Iceland and various destinations in North America. In addition, travellers will be able to benefit from a stopover in Iceland where they can experience our home country on their way to their final destination.Bogi Nils Bogason, President & CEO Icelandair Group

The establishment of the codeshare programme will be beneficial for both, the two parties say. AirBaltic customers will have the opportunity to book flights to North America, while Icelandair customers will benefit from airBaltic’s variety of destinations in Eastern Europe.

Despite the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, airBaltic plans to launch direct flights from Riga to Reykjavik, Billund, Madrid, among others. By the end of August 2020, airBaltic aims to expand its route network to a total of 69 destinations.
