Customers from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport will have a new choice for travel to Iceland and beyond when Icelandair begins new service to Reykjavik’s Keflavik International in May 2018.
Icelandair will serve Dallas Fort Worth to Keflavik route four times per week with a Boeing 757-200 aircraft.
“Dallas Fort Worth Airport is pleased to provide our customers with additional choices when they fly across the Atlantic,” said Sean Donohue, CEO for DFW International Airport. “Icelandair will offer our customers a full-service option whether traveling to Reykjavik, Scandinavia or some of the most popular destinations in Europe.”
The new route will open up more travel choices for DFW customers via the Icelandair hub in Reykjavik, which serves more than 25 destinations in Europe.
“As we celebrate our 80th anniversary, we are pleased to offer the largest route network in Icelandair’s history,” said Birkir Holm Gudnason, Icelandair CEO. “Our new service from Dallas Fort Worth will provide a refreshing alternative for travelers from Texas with non-stop flights to Iceland and beyond. The new DFW route will also open opportunities for European travelers wanting to explore the Dallas Fort Worth region and the great Lone Star state. We look forward to welcoming Dallas Fort Worth travelers aboard.”
When Icelandair launches service in May 2018, the airline will be the 17th international carrier to serve Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
