In less than two weeks Icelandair will start flying between Aberdeen Airport and Reykjavik.
From the 9th March, the airline will fly four times a week between the two cities – each Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
The service will be operated on a Bombardier Q400 that seats 72 passengers, offering Economy and Economy Comfort seating.
The service has an added benefit to passengers not only that Aberdeen Airport passengers can now fly frequently to the awe-inspiring Icelandic city, but also the fact that Reykjavik Airport is a gateway for Icelandair to 16 North American destinations.
Travellers can take advantage of interconnecting flights to the US such as New York, Orlando, Seattle, Toronto, as well as new services to Chicago and Montreal.
Speaking about the impending service, Birkir Holm Gudnason, CEO of Icelandair, “It was a pleasure to be able to announce Aberdeen in the same year we celebrated 70 years of flying to Scotland. We see great opportunities in connecting this market to our route network of North American destinations. Travel times will be shortened and we’re confident customers will appreciate the easy connections through our hub in Iceland”.
