Icelandair has announced seasonal service to the heartland of America with flights from Kansas City International Airport (MCI) commencing on May 25, 2018, the company said.
Icelandair´s Kansas City service will offer three non-stop flights a week to Iceland on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, with easy connections to and from more than 25 destinations in Europe.
Kansas City is known as the “City of Fountains” and “Paris of the Plains.” With a rich American history situated in the heart of the Midwest, Kansas City offers visitors upscale shopping, a thriving art scene and plenty of fine dining, along with some great steaks and unrivaled American BBQ.
It is also known as the home of the infamous Jessie James and where cartoonist Walt Disney first created the iconic Mickey Mouse while an art student. Music lovers know Kansas City as the home of “swing”, where Count Basie started his new form of jazz in the local Kansas City clubs, and where Fats Domino was inspired to write his classic hit, “Kansas City, Here I Come.”
Iceland has become one of the hottest destinations in Europe. Less than 7 hours from MCI, Iceland is a natural wonderland filled with geysers, glaciers and waterfalls, clean air, pure water and natural hot springs. And if Iceland is not your final destination, be sure to take an Icelandair Stopover for up to seven nights at no additional airfare.
Icelandair has been in operation since 1937, and celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2017. The airline has helped boost tourism to its home country in record numbers and bolstered Iceland as one of Europe´s hottest destinations. As an aviation pioneer, Icelandair continues to grow by adding new aircraft to its modern fleet, more destinations and popular amenities, including over 600 hours of personal in-flight entertainment and gate-to-gate Wi-Fi access available on all routes.
