Icelandair on November 3, 2017 launched year-round service from Berlin-Tegel Airport (TXL), with flight # FI529 departing at 1:05pm. Icelandair CEO, Birkir Hólm Guðnason and Berlin Tegel COO, Elmar Kleinert, were at the gate to welcome the boarding passengers and help celebrate the new route. Icelandair‘s new service will operate three flights a week (Mondays, Fridays and Sundays) between Reykjavik and Berlin with connections to and from 20 destinations in North America.
“Berlin is our 4th gateway in Germany, and establishes our commitment to strengthen our transatlantic route network by providing passengers with more convenient connections between Europe and North America. Berlin, the capital city of Germany, has a rich history, diverse culture, and vibrant nightlife, which we look forward to sharing with our passengers,” said Birkir Holm Gudnason, CEO of Icelandair.
Icelandair, in operation since 1937, has a long, illustrious history of bridging North America and mainland Europe through Iceland. The airline has helped boost tourism to its home country in record numbers and in bolstering Iceland as one of Europe’s hottest destinations.
