In what appears to be a disturbing trend in the industry, Icelandair has joined those programs that charge a fee to redeem miles.
The airline has imposed a U. S. $25 redemption fee, and a $12 fee per child for children between two and 12 years of age. The fee is also applicable to hotel and car rental redemptions.
However, no service fee will be charged for an award booking if it is made through the Internet. All online requests are answered within 24 hours.
