Icelandair’s Reykjavik/Keflavik to Vancouver
- Icelandair on 13 May launched its latest route to North America, with the introduction of twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Sundays) flights from Reykjavik/Keflavik (KEF) to Vancouver (YVR). The 5,700-kilometre sector will be flown by the airline’s 757s until 12 October and faces no direct competition. This becomes Icelandair’s fourth destination in Canada as it already serves Edmonton, Halifax and Toronto. In addition the airline also flies to eight destinations in the US.
