Icelandair continues its North American expansion with a new route and another restarting in summer 2024. The airline will offer flights to its 12th US destination, Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), as well as restart the Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ) route.
Both of these routes will be served with Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft between May and October 2024. Flights between Pennsylvania’s second-largest city, Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) and Keflavík International Airport (KEF), will operate 4x weekly. Service to and from Nova Scotia’s capital, Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ), will run 3x weekly.
Bogi Nils Bogason, Icelandair CEO, said:
We present an ambitious flight schedule for next summer and the largest in the Company’s history. Our fleet continues to grow and next year we will add three new, efficient, and eco-friendly Boeing 737 MAX’s. We are very pleased to be adding two new destinations in North America and significantly increasing frequency to other destinations. The North American market has been very strong, with Americans now the largest single group of tourists to Iceland. Our experienced team, comprehensive sales infrastructure and strong international brand, together with valuable cooperation agreements with other airlines, allows us to continue moving forward and seizing the opportunities we see in our markets.”
Icelandair is continuing to modernize its fleet with three Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft coming in 2024. The carrier will then have 42 aircraft (with 21 of them being Boeing 737 MAX).
Anthony’s Take: Icelandair has made travel to the island nation easily accessible to so many in the United States. It’s a quick flight and you’ll be transported into another world. I’ve loved traveling there (3x so far) and can’t wait to return.
