Customers from Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport will have a new choice for travel to Iceland and beyond when Icelandair begins new service to Reykjavik’s Keflavik International (KEF) on May 30, 2018. Icelandair will serve DFW to KEF four times per week with a Boeing 757-200 aircraft. The new route will open up more travel choices for DFW customers via the Icelandair hub in Reykjavik, which serves more than 25 destinations in Europe. Icelandair’s updated fleet also offers travelers more legroom, in-flight entertainment, and gate-to-gate Wi-Fi.
“As we celebrate our 80th anniversary, we are pleased to offer the largest route network in Icelandair’s history,” said Birkir Holm Gudnason, Icelandair CEO. “Our new service from Dallas Fort Worth will provide a refreshing alternative for travelers from Texas with non-stop flights to Iceland and beyond. The new DFW route will also open opportunities for European travelers wanting to explore the Dallas Fort Worth region and the great Lone Star state. We look forward to welcoming Dallas Fort Worth aboard.”
