the Northwest will gain a new nonstop route to Europe when Icelandair begins service between Seattle and Reykjavik, Iceland on July 22.I actually took the SAS Seattle to Copenhagen flight when I was traveling to Cologne, Germany in August 2003. This is by no means interesting news, but I have wanted to travel to Reykjavik for a few years now, and the possibility of getting there much more easily is now being presented to me. Although, the ticket cost is around $900 round-trip. Ouch. A plane ride to Iceland or a huge chunk of debt paid off. Hmm. Decisions, decisions.
The airline is stepping in with the new flights just as Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) is preparing to end its Seattle-Copenhagen service on July 31.
Icelandair will offer four flights a week departing Seattle-Tacoma International Airport at 4:30 p.m., arriving in Reykjavik at 6:45 a.m. the following morning. Flight time will be about 7.5 hours.
