The flight schedule in and out of Keflavik International Airport in Iceland is due to be extended in preparation for the summer months. Icelandair will start services to and from Brussels in June 2010 with two flights a week, on Mondays and Fridays.
The Iceland airline company started scheduled service between its European destinations and Seattle-Tacoma International (SEA) on July 22, 2009. Flights connect via Keflavik, allowing passengers the option to stopover in Iceland at no additional airfare. Icelandair now offers four flights a week departing Keflavik Airport at 17:00 GMT and arriving at 16:45 local time in Seattle.
Icelandair is working in cooperation with Alaska Airlines, allowing for a host of onward connections to destinations in the western United States and Canada including: Anchorage, Calgary, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Vancouver.
In addition, Keflavik International Airport has been crowned the best airport in Europe by Airports Council International, allowing you to travel with peace of mind and take advantage of the extensive airport facilities, warm atmosphere, friendly staff and easy accessibility of connecting flights. Iceland’s main airport shopping area hosts eighteen various duty free shops, selling both well-known products and Icelandic designs. Confectionary items, liquor, cosmetics and tobacco are also widely available. Furthermore to this, due to the favourable rate of currency exchange, Iceland is becoming cheaper by the day for visiting travellers.
