Icelandair will launch new nonstop service between Keflavik International Airport in Reykjavik and Montreal’s Pierre Trudeau International Airport on 19 May, 2016. Montreal will be the airline’s 16th destination in North America, connecting the Canadian city to more than 20 destinations in Europe.
The 78-year-old carrier will begin service four times per week from Montreal and fares will include its famous “Icelandair Stopover,” which allows its passengers to stop for up to seven nights in Iceland at no additional cost.
Icelandair now offers nearly as many destinations in North America as it does in Europe. Cities now include Boston, Chicago O’Hare, Denver, Edmonton, New York-JFK, Newark, Seattle, Toronto, and Washington, D.C.; and seasonal service from Anchorage, Halifax, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Orlando, Portland and Vancouver.
"Montreal will be our fifth Canadian gateway, opening the skies to Europe from Canada's second largest city. The addition of Montreal will give Canadians coast to coast more options in travel from Canada and provide both the business and leisure traveler a refreshing alternative when traveling to Iceland and beyond," said Birkir Holm Gudnason, Icelandair CEO.
Icelandair operates a fleet of Boeing 757-200/300 aircraft and each plane is named after an Icelandic volcano.
