Kansas City Is Getting Its First Nonstop Transatlantic Flight - to Iceland

Icelandair is bringing back its nonstop service to Iceland from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport after a decade's absence.

These three new routes will provide a greater choice of travel destinations for United Kingdom passengers with connections from the existing six United Kingdom gateways that Icelandair serves via its hub in Reykjavik. "This will not only benefit families and leisure travelers wanting to explore the world but will also open up many opportunities for business, trade and foreign relations between Europe and Kansas City".

"The time is right for Icelandair to return to BWI", said Icelandair CEO Bjorgolfur Johannsson, in a statement. Plus, Icelandair offers an Iceland Stopover for travelers to stay and explore the country for up to seven nights at no additional fare.

Only 8 hours from SFO, Iceland has become one of the hottest destinations in Europe, a natural wonderland with geysers, glaciers and waterfalls, clean air, pure cool water and flowing hot springs.

"We are proud to be the airport of choice for Icelandair's expansion on the US West Coast", said Ivar Satero, airport director of SFO. Visitors can expect a temperate climate with scenic views, nearby beaches and parks, along with a thriving cosmopolitan city filled with museums, eclectic shops and assorted restaurants.

"Today our network is bigger and stronger than ever, and we offer our passengers more flights, more connections, and a refreshing alternative to Iceland and beyond".
