Icelandair has announced that in May 2019, it will be adding new departure and arrival times for European and North American routes, significantly expanding its selection of convenient flights.
The airline is adding new departures from Keflavik Airport. That includes flights to selected cities in Europe at 10:30am and to selected cities in North-America at 8pm.
These departures are additions to current connecting times which are early in the morning and the afternoon. The changes are also related to the ongoing renewal of the Icelandair fleet of aircraft.
The airline has taken delivery of three Boeing 737-MAX aircraft and will be welcoming six additional aircraft early next year. The new departure times are considered to be much less busy hours at Leif Eiriksson Air Terminal in Ke avík, which means less waiting during check-in and security, and an altogether more pleasant travel experience, the airline says.
Icelandair has also announced it will increase the choice of available flights to North-America. Next year, travellers will be able to fly from Iceland to the USA and Canada in the evening, at 8pm, enabling them to make the most of their day, be it business or pleasure. This departure time will be available for flights to Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, New York, Toronto, and Washington DC, Icelandair.
At the same time next year, Icelandair has announced that it will increase the number of its reserve aircraft at Ke avík Airport from one to three, and maybe more, which will enable it to react faster to incidental delays.
