The new flight will commence on May 25, 2018 and operate thrice-weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, while return flights will operate on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

“Today marks the first time in history that Icelandair will offer non-stop flights to and from the heart of America to Iceland and beyond,” said the airline’s CEO, Björgólfur Jóhannsson, in a statement.

Flights will depart Kansas City International Airport at 5:15 p.m. local time and arrive at Keflavik Airport in Iceland at 5:10 a.m. the following day. Return flights to Kansas City will leave Keflavik at 6 p.m. local time, arriving in Kansas City at 8:45 p.m. the same day.

Kansas City was founded in 1830 as a port city. It is the 23rd largest city in the United States by total area and is known for a vibrant arts scene, excellent BBQ, and as the home of outlaw Jesse James.
