Quincy, MA, December 21, 2011 - Icelandair and Frontier Airlines have announced a new interline partnership, expanding the travel options from Denver International Airport.

This exciting news comes shortly after Icelandair's announcement of new service from Denver starting May 11, 2012 with four flights a week to Iceland. Once in Iceland, Icelandair offers connections to over 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the United Kingdom, and Continental Europe with the ability to stopover in Iceland at no additional airfare.

"Icelandair is excited to be heading to Denver and thrilled by our partnership with Frontier Airlines. This new Frontier will expand the travel opportunities for the west with competitive airfares, comfortable leather seats, personal in-flight entertainment and three cabins of service. Icelandair looks forward to strengthening the bridge to Europe with convenient connections through Iceland and the fastest elapse time to many European destinations from Denver. Together Icelandair and Frontier Airlines will offer a refreshing alternative for passengers traveling through Denver International Airport," said Thorsteinn Egilsson, General Manger for Icelandair The Americas.

Denver is Icelandair's newest gateway and will give mid western passengers more choices when traveling to Iceland and beyond. This new partnership will enable travelers to book competitive airfare with a single combined ticket on Frontier and Icelandair-operated flights along with one-stop check-in and baggage transfer between the two airlines.

Frontier Airlines operates more than 500 daily flights from its hubs at Denver International Airport, Milwaukee's General Mitchell International Airport, and Kansas City International Airport with service from more than 80 gateways in the United States, Mexico, and Costa Rica.

"This ideal partnership will connect two independent thinking, value-oriented airlines with convenient connections through Denver International Airport. The scheduled times of Frontier Airlines flights complement Icelandair's flights to Denver, making a harmonious combination throughout the Western United States to Europe.," said Daniel Shurz, Frontier's Vice President of Planning and Strategy.

Icelandair, the national carrier of Iceland since 1937, offers three cabins of service including leather seats and personal in-flight entertainment for all travelers. The new interline pricing will follow the airlines philosophy of giving passengers a refreshing travel experience from start to finish.

In addition to Denver, Icelandair, offers non-stop service to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Seattle, with seasonal flights from Washington, D.C., Minneapolis - St. Paul, Orlando Sanford, Halifax and Toronto. Connections through Icelandair's hub at Keflavik International Airport are available to over 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the U.K. and Continental Europe. Icelandair also allows passengers to stopover in Iceland at no additional airfare.
