Quincy, MA, April 16, 2012 - As a part of Icelandair's 2012 seasonal schedule, the national carrier of Iceland is gearing up to resume seasonal service from Minneapolis on May 15, 2012. Flights will depart MSP at 6:30pm operating up to daily service to Iceland running through October 16, 2012. Flights from Minneapolis will then resume in the spring of 2013.

This year, Icelandair celebrates 75 years of aviation with the largest network in its history, including additional flights to recently added London Gatwick and daily service to London Heathrow.

In addition to Minneapolis, Icelandair’s 2012 summer schedule will include the launch of service from its newest gateway, Denver International Airport on May 11, 2012, and the return of seasonal flights from Washington-Dulles, Toronto and Halifax. Due to the increased demand from New York, Icelandair will also introduce a second evening flight with up to 10 flights per week from JFK through November 5, 2012.

Icelandair offers service to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Seattle, and Denver with seasonal service from Washington, D.C., Minneapolis-St. Paul, Orlando Sanford, Halifax and Toronto. Connections through Icelandair’s hub at Keflavik International Airport are available to over 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the U.K. and Continental Europe. Only Icelandair allows passengers to stopover in Iceland at no additional airfare.
