Canada is only 4 hours away after Icelandair reinstated its direct Keflavik – Halifax route.
Reykjavik / Halifax (ICENEWS) 9 May 2007 – Icelandair has resumed flights between the international airports of Halifax and Keflavik in time for the busy summer season. As of Thursday 17th May there will be three flights a week between Halifax and Keflavik leaving on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The flight time is 4.15 hours and flights leave from Iceland at 6.40 pm and from Halifax at 9pm.
Halifax Stanfield International Airport is Atlantic Canada’s principal airport. It provides passengers with access to markets across the country, the United States and Europe, and is the only airport in Atlantic Canada to offer convenient US preclearance for non-stop US bound passengers.
Halifax is the capital of Nova Scotia, an area full of culture, heritage and natural beauty. European visitors can combine a trip to the sandy beaches, rugged shorelines and charming fishing villages of Nova Scotia with Icelandair’s offer of a free stop-over in Reykjavik. Passengers can break their journey with up to 7 nights in Iceland and gives them enough time for either a quick relaxing dip in the nearby Blue Lagoon or an incredible trip around the island.
Many US and Canadian travellers can also see the new service as another connection to European destinations such as Glasgow, London, Paris and Frankfurt.
