Icelandair expands network with addition of 2nd bank of flights

Icelandair announced it has expanded its current network with the addition of a second bank of flights to create more options for passengers traveling to and from North America and Europe, the company said.

The new bank of flights will be in addition to the current Icelandair flight schedule and begin May, 2019. Although the second connection bank will be smaller, additional flights will operate to major cities in Europe, including, Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Oslo, Paris, Stockholm, and Zurich. North America will see the second bank option in Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, New York, Toronto and Washington, DC.

The new bank will also create opportunities to enter new markets, improve passenger service and increase flexibility in the network. The additional flights are linked to the ongoing renewal of Icelandair´s fleet, as the company will be adding six new Boeing MAX aircraft early next year, in addition to the three that arrived this year.

Icelandair offers service to and from Iceland through Icelandair´s hub at Keflavik International Airport serving 25 destinations in North America and more than 23 destinations in Scandinavia, the UK, and Continental Europe.
