Have you always wanted to visit Iceland and experience the Northern Lights phenomenon in person? Well then, this exciting travel news from Icelandair is sure to warm you up on this cold October day.
Airline Icelandair has announced direct flights between Dublin Airport and Reykjavik in Iceland, set to be launched next summer.
The new six-times weekly service will take off in May 2018 and it will also create 20 new connections to and from gateways in North America.
Irish traveller’s can already travel to Iceland with WOW Air, which has been flying the route since 2015, but these new flights with Icelandair will offer commuters more choice.
Dublin Airport’s Managing Director, Vincent Harrison, commented on the new route for summer 2018, saying Icelandair’s arrival would offer customers more choice when travelling to Iceland and 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.
“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.”
