Icelandair expands services to North America

Airline lays on additional frequencies from Keflavik

Icelandair has announced a boost in frequencies to its summer 2015 schedules, creating the biggest network in the airline’s history.

Additional flights between June and mid-September include an eighth weekly Seattle flight with wing-to-wing flights on Tuesdays; a third weekly Vancouver flight, on Thursdays; and a seventh Newark flight on Sundays.

One of the most significant increases will be from Minneapolis/St Paul. Starting May 12, Icelandair will offer four flights a week with its seasonal service extended until January 10, 2016, from October 27. In 2016, this service will resume in mid-March, pushed forward from the original commencement date in May.

Icelandair’s European destinations will also be bolstered from June to September, with London Gatwick and Zurich offering six flights a week and Amsterdam and Paris adding to wing-to-wing service on Wednesdays and Sundays, respectively.

In all, Icelandair offers services to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Washington DC, Seattle, Denver, Toronto and Edmonton, with seasonal services from Newark, Minneapolis-St Paul, Orlando, Portland, Vancouver, Halifax and Anchorage. Connections through Icelandair’s hub at Keflavik International Airport are available to more than 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the UK and Continental Europe. Icelandair also allows passengers to take an Icelandair Stopover for up to seven nights at no additional airfare.
