Icelandair will resume services to Orlando International Airport (MCO) starting September 2015.
The airline is also adding an extra weekly flight to the sunny destination taking the service up to four times a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
The resumed service will offer easy connections via Icelandair’s hub in Reykjavik (KEF) from Heathrow, Gatwick, Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester. Passengers will also be able to stopover in Iceland on their way for up to seven nights for no additional airfare.
Phil Brown, Executive Director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority said: “We are pleased that Icelandair sees value in providing their customers with an excellent travel experience including a world-class airport like Orlando International and destination such as Central Florida.”
Andrés Jónsson, General Manager of Icelandair in UK said “This is great news for British travellers as it gives them more travel options for their Florida holidays in 2015 and beyond. We are continuing to grow our route network in 2015 with more frequencies to several destinations including starting flights from Birmingham airport in February and to new destination Portland in May 2015. ”
