It has been announced that a brand new service between Belfast Airport and Rejkjavik will take off next summer.
The new service, by Icelandair, will commence from 1st June 2017 as demand to this unique country increases.
Flying three times a week – each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday – these convenient flights are ideal for long week and mid week breaks.
Speaking about the new service, Icelandair CEO, Birkir Holm Guðnason, said, “Belfast is a vibrant fast growing city with great business and leisure opportunities and we are happy to be able to offer our customers this exciting addition to our network.”
Whilst Katy Best, Commercial and Marketing Director at George Best Belfast City Airport, added, “Belfast City Airport is delighted to announce our new three-times weekly flight to Reykjavik, which is a further extension of our growing European route network and a major boost to the Northern Ireland economy. Icelandair has a proven international pedigree and our partnership with the airline for this new service will be a hugely welcome addition to the local market for business and leisure passengers.
With a fantastic range of cultural events, activities and historical sites, the Icelandic capital is an increasingly popular tourist destination, while the route offers passengers an extremely convenient connection to a host of destinations in the USA and Canada.”
