Quincy, MA, August 5, 2010 – Icelandair continues to expand their 2011 summer schedule with the announcement of 3 flights a week to Billund, Denmark and 2 flights a week to Gothenburg, Sweden starting June 2011 through September 2011.

“We are anticipating increased demand for next year and we look forward to offering our passengers more options to Scandinavia” said Thorsteinn Egilsson, Icelandair’s general manager for the Americas. “These exciting destinations are no stranger to Icelandair as we have seen scheduled flights to Gothenburg, Sweden as recently as 2008 and have been operating charter flights to Billund for many years. In addition to being popular places to visit, these two new destinations sport thriving business communities and many tourist attractions including the home of Legoland in Billund and a desired port of call for many major international cruise lines in Gothenburg. We are pleased to now further strengthen the bridge between North America and Scandinavia.”

The 2011 Icelandair schedule for Scandinavia will include service to two major cities in Denmark (Copenhagen, Billund) and Sweden (Stockholm, Gothenburg) along with four major cities in Norway (Bergen, Oslo, Stavanger, Trondheim) and Helsinki Finland. With these additional flights, Icelandair will offer service to 9 Scandinavian destinations and will operate up to 200 flights a week for the 2011 summer schedule.

Icelandair offers service to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Seattle, and seasonal service from Minneapolis - St. Paul, Orlando Sanford, Halifax and Toronto.
