Icelandair Initiates New DOT Pricing Rules

Icelandair has adopted the new U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) rules regarding fare advertising effective immediately, well in advance of the DOT’s required implementation date of January 24, 2012.

“We feel this early transition makes sense and will simplify budgeting for passengers making travel plans with Icelandair,” said Thorsteinn Egilsson, general manager, Icelandair- the Americas.

Optional fees such as additional baggage costs, meal service, upgrades or other optional charges are not shown in the fare but will be listed in a disclaimer when prices are advertised.
