American Airlines announced Tuesday it will offer its first-ever flights to Iceland starting next spring.

The seasonal service will begin on June 7, 2018 and connect Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport with Keflavik International Airport in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik. The carrier will continue the service through October 27.

Flights will depart Dallas at 8:20 p.m. and arrive in Reykjavik at 9:15 a.m. the next morning. Flights from Reykjavik to Dallas are scheduled to depart at 11:10 a.m. and arrive at 2:50 p.m.

The carrier will operate the route using 176-seat Boeing 757-200 aircraft, equipped with 16 lie-flat seats in business class, 52 seats in Main Cabin Extra, the carrier’s premium economy lite section, and 108 seats in economy. Business-class seats are 21″ wide and extend to a full-length bed.

“Reykjavik has become a very popular leisure destination,” said Vasu Raju, the airline’s vice president of network and schedule planning. “We look forward to giving our customers the opportunity to experience Iceland’s unique landscape of geysers, volcanos, and hot springs with our new direct service next summer.”
