Icelandair (Keflavik) has announce it will begin scheduled service from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) on October 28, 2013 to Keflavik (near Reykjavik).
Icelandair has served the New York City market for over 60 years with flights to and from John F. Kennedy International (JFK) and will continue to do so. The Newark flights will supplement the JFK service and will operate four times per week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Newark will be the 11th Icelandair gateway in North America and the 36th destination within the Icelandair global route network.
The 2013 timetable is the largest in Icelandair’s 76 year history and is 15% larger than last year. Newark is the fourth destination that has been introduced this year joining Anchorage, Alaska, St. Petersburg, Russia and Zurich, Switzerland.
In addition to Newark, Icelandair offers service to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Seattle, Denver and Toronto with seasonal service from Washington, D.C., Minneapolis-St. Paul, Orlando Sanford, Halifax, and Anchorage (starting May 15, 2013). Connections through Icelandair’s hub at Keflavik International Airport are available to more than 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the U.K. and Continental Europe.
