Icelandair have announced a new year-round service from Aberdeen Airport to Reykjavik! The new route will be Icelandair’s second Scottish destination and their sixth destination in the UK. The route will be operated 4 times per week by an Air Iceland Dash 8 Q400.
“It is a pleasure to be able to announce Aberdeen on the same year as we celebrate 70 years of flying to Scotland. We see great opportunities in connecting this market to our route network of North American destinations. Travel times will be shortened and we’re confident customers will appreciate the easy connections in our hub in Iceland” says Birkir Holm Gudnason, CEO of Icelandair.
Carol Benzie, MD at Aberdeen International Airport said: ‘We’re thrilled to welcome Icelandair to Aberdeen, our first direct flight to Iceland. The decision to commence the service from the North East is fantastic news for both leisure and business travellers wanting to reach Reykjavik, and of course the extensive number of onward connections to the US and Canada now available. We look forward to working with Icelandair and its subsidiary Air Iceland and wish them every success with the route’.
