Icelandair, the primary airline of Iceland, will expand its seasonal service to round the year service between Keflavik and Washington from January 2015.
The increased demand of the passengers has resulted in the announcement of this year-round service from its current seasonal service. The flights will operate from Keflavik International Airport to Washington Dulles International Airport. The flights on this route will be non-stop and will fly four times a week on every Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
The addition of this service will be the first of its kind for Icelandair since 2006. Passengers can travel from Mid-Atlantic regions to Iceland very easily and more conveniently after the initiation of this direct and year round flight.
With the launch of this route, Icelandair will now offer seven round the year flights to the US. In addition, the airline now offers flights to 13 North American cities, thus making this 2015’s largest air network in the history of Icelandair.
The carrier provides round the year service to other six important American destinations including Denver, Edmonton, New York, Boston, Toronto, and Seattle. Also, it provides seasonal service from Minneapolis-St. Paul, Halifax, Anchorage, Orlando Sanford, and Vancouver. Keflavik International Airport of Iceland serves as a hub to the airline and offers flights to more than 20 destinations. These destinations are spread across America and Europe.
In order to celebrate the new round the year service on this route Icelandair representatives reached the streets of Washington. They offered a gift of round-trip air tickets for two for travel to any one of the 20 destinations in Europe including Iceland. One pair of tickets was gifted each day from June 12 through June 14. In addition, they also distributed prizes including t-shirt, music CDs of Iceland, travel certificates, and other products.
