What are the hours and when should I call?

Icelandair operates the call center for this 800-223-5500 phone number 24 hours, 7 days. The short answer is that you should call on a Friday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 67 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).

Automatically call when they open

When you use our free AI-powered phone to call and talk, wait on hold, or navigate for you, it will automatically wait until the Icelandair call center opens before trying to call. It will ask your permission before it places the call, so you can also further delay that scheduled call until you are ready. But that means you can "set it and forget it" ahead of time.
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Icelandair phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Icelandair staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call Icelandair is Friday. The most busy day to call is Sunday, which averages 200% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 67 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The best time to call Icelandair

In summation, the best day to call Icelandair is Friday. In this case, it's a no-brainer. Friday is not only the least busy day for calling this Icelandair number, but it is also the day with the shortest hold times.

As a last, sometimes only, resort- Icelandair customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
