Icelandair launches new Aberdeen route

Year-round service is airline’s sixth in the UK
Icelandair has opened a new year-round service between Reykjavik and Aberdeen – its second in Scotland and sixth in the UK. Flights are operating four times a week.
“It was a pleasure to be able to announce Aberdeen in the same year we celebrated 70 years of flying to Scotland,” said Andres Jónsson, the airline’s general manager UK & Ireland.
“We see great opportunities in connecting this market to our route network of North American destinations. Travel times will be shortened and we’re confident customers will appreciate the easy connections through our hub in Iceland.”
The new route is being operated on behalf of Icelandair by subsidiary Air Iceland, with a Bombardier Q400 seating 72 passengers in a choice of two cabin classes, Economy and Economy Comfort.
