Icelandair expands Washington to year-round

Mid-Atlantic to fly year-round to Iceland, first time since 2006



Due to what it claims is increased demand, Icelandair will move flights between Washington Dulles International Airport and Keflavik International from seasonal to a year-round service.

Additional flights will begin in January 2015 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, providing the USA’s mid-Atlantic region year-round access to Iceland for the first time since 2006.

Icelandair now offers services from 13 cities in North America, making its 2015 route network the biggest in its history.

The carrier flies to Iceland from Boston, New York (JFK and Newark), Seattle, Denver, Washington DC, Toronto and Edmonton, with seasonal services from Minneapolis-St Paul, Orlando Sanford, Anchorage, Halifax and Vancouver.

Connections via Icelandair’s Keflavik hub are available to more than 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the UK and continental Europe. Icelandair allows passengers a stopover in Iceland at no additional airfare.
