Icelandair announce new service to Reykjavik and onto the USA and Canada from Birmingham Airport

Icelandair has announced a new scheduled service to Keflavik Airport, Reykjavik,
from Birmingham Airport which will become the airlines 5th UK gateway - the new
flights will operate twice weekly from Thursday 5 of February 2015

Andres Jonsson, General Manager of Icelandair UK, said: "We are delighted to announce
Birmingham as our newest gateway in the UK. Our first route from the Midlands will not
only open up opportunities of travelling to and from Iceland but also a refreshing and
convenient way to North America"

Just under 3 hours from Birmingham, the Nordic country is expected to become a popular
year-round destination from the Midlands. "Iceland’s nature, including the Northern Lights
and the hot springs, has always been the biggest attraction but Icelandic locals will also
offer a warm welcome. In fact, Iceland was voted the friendliest nation on earth in a recent
poll by World Economic Forum" adds Andres

The new service will also offer an attractive flight option to North America. Andres explains:
"By using Iceland’s geographical position midway between Europe and North America we
can offer some of the fastest elapse times from Birmingham to popular destinations such
as Washington DC and Seattle

William Pearson, Birmingham Airport’s Aviation Development Director, added, "The decision
by Icelandair to commence services from Birmingham is fantastic news for Midlands’ business
and leisure travellers wanting to reach Reykjavik, and indeed onwards to the USA and Canada
using Icelandair’s strong network of connecting flights"

three cabin service, leather seats and personal in-flight entertainment systems. Tickets go on
