Icelandair to Launch Chicago-Reykjavik Route with 767
Icelandair announced that it will operate a Boeing 767 instead of a Boeing 757 on its upcoming year-round service between Reykjavik and Chicago, scheduled to begin on March 16. The carrier says that the change will provide an additional 9,000 seats per year than originally planned.
Flights will depart Chicago O’Hare at 7:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, arriving at Keflavik International Airport in Reykjavik at 6:35 a.m. the next morning. From Reykjavik, flights are set to depart at 4:45 p.m. and arrive in Chicago at 6:15 p.m.
Chicago will be Icelandair’s 16th gateway in North America, after Boston, Denver, Edmonton, New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Newark, Seattle, Toronto, and Washington, D.C., as well as its seasonal destinations of Anchorage, Halifax, Minneapolis, Montreal, Orlando, Vancouver, and Portland, Oregon.
The airline offers connections to over 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the United Kingdom, and Continental Europe from its hub at Keflavik International Airport and offers connecting passengers a stopover in Reykjavik for up to seven days at no additional charge.
