Iceland’s international airport in Keflavik is preparing for the busy summer flight schedule. Icelandair, Iceland’s flagship airline company, is extending its flight plan in preparation for the summer months with two flights a week to and from Brussels in June.
Icelandair has already begun its flight service between European destinations and Seattle-Tacoma International (SEA). 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 now providing numerous onward connecting flights, in cooperation with Alaska Airlines, to destinations in the western United States and Canada including: Anchorage, Calgary, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Vancouver.
As well as this, Keflavik International Airport was recently elected as the best airport in Europe by ACI (Airports Council International). This allows passengers to travel with peace of mind and the opportunity to take advantage of the extensive airport facilities, warm atmosphere, friendly staff and easy accessibility of connecting flights.
The shopping area in Iceland’s main airport 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.
