Icelandair’s 2015 route network will be the biggest in the airline’s history with flights to more than 20 destinations throughout Europe. There airline is stressing that the Portland area’s 2.3 million residents will gain access to one of the region’s fastest elapsed flying times to European destinations such as London, Copenhagen, Paris, Stockholm and Munich.

As with other North American destinations, Icelandair is offering the “exciting option” of booking a stopover in Iceland at no additional airfare for up to seven nights.
