Good News For Seattleites With Reykjavik In Mind

The Seattle Times Online is reporting that
the Northwest will gain a new nonstop route to Europe when Icelandair begins service between Seattle and Reykjavik, Iceland on July 22.

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.

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.

  1. You should book a flight that goes THROUGH rejashthkastlkhwavik but strategically plan a 2 day layover!
