Dallas Fort Worth Airport welcomes Icelandair service
The main airline of Iceland will serve DFW to KEF four times per week with a Boeing 757-200 aircraft.
"DFW Airport is pleased to provide our customers with additional choices when they fly across the Atlantic," said Sean Donohue, CEO for DFW International Airport. "Icelandair will offer our customers a full-service option whether traveling to Reykjavik, Scandinavia or some of the most popular destinations in Europe."
The new route will open up more travel choices for DFW customers via the Icelandair hub in Reykjavik, which serves more than 25 destinations in Europe.
"As we celebrate our 80th anniversary, we are pleased to offer the largest route network in Icelandair's history," said Birkir Holm Gudnason, Icelandair CEO. "Our new service from Dallas Fort Worth will provide a refreshing alternative for travelers from Texas with non-stop flights to Iceland and beyond. The new DFW route will also open opportunities for European travelers wanting to explore the Dallas Fort Worth region and the great Lone Star state. We look forward to welcoming Dallas Fort Worth travelers aboard."
Travelers from Iceland can take advantage of DFW's facilities at International Terminal D that feature highly efficient customs processing, as well as world-class shopping, dining and amenities. DFW's geographic position, size and amenities also makes for convenient connections from Europe and Asia to points across North America, Central and South America.
When Icelandair launches service in May 2018, the airline will be the 17th international carrier to serve DFW International Airport.
