Iceland´s premier airline, Icelandair, said it has announced continued expansion of their global network with new seasonal service from Montreal beginning May 19, 2016.
Flights from Pierre Trudeau International Airport will mark the arrival of the airline´s first gateway in the province of Quebec, and 16th in North America.
As part of Icelandair´s extensive timetable, four flights a week will be offered from Canada´s second largest city through November 8, 2016 with departures on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The five-hour, non-stop flight to Icelandair´s hub at Keflavik International Airport also provides connections to more than 20 destinations in Europe, including Paris, London, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo.
After the signing of the 2007 open skies agreement between Iceland and Canada, Icelandair continued to develop service from the Great White North. Following the commencement of Halifax in 1998, new gateways were launched including Toronto in 2008, Edmonton and Vancouver in 2014, and with today´s announcement, Montreal beginning in 2016.
Icelandair, in operation since 1937, has a long, illustrious history of providing flights from North America to Europe. It offers service to Iceland from Boston, Chicago-ORD, Denver, Edmonton, New York-JFK, Newark, Seattle, Toronto, and Washington, D.C.; and seasonal service from Anchorage, Halifax, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Montreal, Orlando, Portland, OR, and Vancouver, BC.
