Icelandair Launches New Reykjavik Service from Dublin

Dublin Airport has welcomed the announcement from Icelandair that it will launch a new six-times weekly, year-round service to Reykjavik from May 2018.

The new service, which will also have connections to and from 20 gateways in North America, will operate six days per week.

Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison said Icelandair’s arrival would offer customers additional choice for travel to Iceland and beyond to North America.

“Iceland is a very popular destination for short breaks and is on many people’s bucket list and Dublin Airport warmly welcomes today’s announcement from Icelandair, which further strengthens the connection between the two countries,” Mr Harrison said.

“This new service will also provide additional options for North American visitors to get to Ireland, which is great news for the Irish tourism sector and the many thousands of businesses that it supports throughout the country,” he added.

“We are excited to provide a service to Dublin, also known as one of the friendliest cities in Europe,” said, Icelandair Chief Executive Birkir Holm Gudnason.

“Ireland will be a welcome destination for North American travellers wanting to explore castles, culture and have access to the beautiful Irish countryside, with green fields, friendly, English-speaking residents and a rich and exciting history,” he added.

Icelandair will operate its new Dublin to Reykjavik service with a Boeing 757-200 aircraft. Flights will operate Sunday to Friday departing Keflavik Airport at 07.30 arriving in Dublin Airport at 09.15 with the return flight departing Dublin Airport at 11.50 arriving in Keflavik at 13.15.
