Icelandair begins Montreal service

Icelandair has launched new seasonal service from Montreal, Canada, the company said.

The flights from Pierre Trudeau International Airport mark the arrival of the airline´s first gateway in the province of Quebec, and 16th in North America.

As part of their extensive 2016 timetable, Icelandair offers four weekly flights through November 8 from Canada´s second largest city. The five-hour, non-stop flight departs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays to Icelandair´s hub at Keflavik International Airport, providing 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 continues 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 today, Montreal in 2016.

Icelandair, in operation since 1937, has a long history of providing flights from North America to Europe. Since its inception, Icelandair has continued to grow as an airline with fleet-wide gate-to-gate Wi-Fi access, personal in-flight entertainment, three cabins of service and two checked bags included.

Icelandair offers service to Iceland from Boston, Chicago-ORD, Denver, Edmonton, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York-JFK, Newark, Seattle, Toronto, and Washington, D.C.; and seasonal service from Anchorage, Halifax, Montreal, Orlando, Portland, OR, and Vancouver, BC. Connections through Icelandair´s hub at Keflavik International Airport are available to more than 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the UK and Continental Europe.
