Delta institutes Iceland service from Twin Cities hub

Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) said it will launch seasonal service to Iceland´s Keflavik International Airport from its Twin Cities hub beginning May 26, 2016.

Reykjavik will be Delta´s fifth destination in Europe from Minneapolis-St. Paul.

The aircraft offers 20 seats in the premium cabin as well as 29 in Delta Comfort+ and 150 in Main Cabin.

Delta has also extended its service between Reykjavik and New York-JFK, which will now begin February 11, 2016. Previously operated for four months over the peak summer, Delta´s New York-JFK flight will now run for seven months, with service starting three times weekly and moving to daily in May 2016. Delta is the only US airline that operates service to Iceland.
