New flights to Seattle launched by Icelandair

Icelandair has launched flights to Seattle from Reykjavik

Icelandair has launched flights to Seattle from Reykjavik, with the service operating four times a week.

The inaugural service took off from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on July 30th before touching down at the Icelandic capital.

Flights are operated on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays using a 183-seat Boeing 757 aircraft, with take-off scheduled for 16:30 (local time).

Passengers can expect to arrive in Iceland at 06:45 (local time) the following morning.

Port of Seattle commissioner Lloyd Hara said it was "a pleasure to celebrate" the launch of the new route, particularly in the challenging economic climate.

"As the most trade-dependent state in the country, welcoming Icelandair to Sea-Tac encourages and increases our potential for additional trade and tourism," he commented.

Travellers flying to Reykjavik can benefit from convenient onward connections to destinations including Copenhagen, Paris and Amsterdam.

Seattle-Tacoma Airport currently hosts ten international flights to cities in Europe and Asia.

Icelandair is based at Keflavik International Airport and operates routes to 25 cities in 12 countries.
