What is an electronic ticket?

Book your flight as usual online or over the telephone with one of our reservations agents, however your ticket is no longer printed on paper. Instead, it is stored in our reservation system as an electronic ticket or e-ticket. To confirm your reservation, we send you a receipt with an itinerary via e-mail. You can then print out your receipt and carry it with you as a confirmation of your reservation.

What are the advantages of electronic ticketing?

An e-ticket can not be forgotten, misplaced or stolen. When booking simply provide your "Form of ID"- a credit card, or Icelandair Saga Bonus, Saga Silver, or Saga Gold Frequent Flyer card number and the ticket is "saved" in our check- in system.

"The Form of ID" is only required for when making a reservation online and not for check-in purposes. If you wish, all passengers in your booking can use the same credit card or Frequent Flyer card as their E-Ticket form of ID (for example, children travelling with adults).

Please NOTE that the form of ID will not be asked for when you check in.

How to check-in with an e-ticket

When departing from North America or Europe all you need to check in is your Icelandair E-ticket confirmation that you received via email when you purchased your ticket and your passport.


Please Note: You must always show a printed proof of itinerary when travelling to the United States. We recommend that you always carry a printed receipt of your e-ticket with you when traveling to Iceland or to the United States.


Please be advised that a valid passport is required for International travel.
