Icelandair adds St Petersburg and Zurich to its network

Icelandair’s Reykjavik to Zurich

“How else, if not with a volcano cake, would you greet an Icelandic crew on their first flight to Zurich at the start of June? With a little help of dry ice, the volcano even produced a small volcanic ash cloud!” (Photo caption courtesy of Nicole Hortobàgyi Brand, Zurich Airport’s Manager Marketing Services)

Icelandair adds St Petersburg and Zurich to its network

St Petersburg welcomed the arrival of Icelandair with the traditional watercannon salute.

  • Icelandair inaugurated services on two European routes last week. Starting 1 June, the carrier operates twice-weekly frequencies to St Petersburg (LED) and Zurich (ZRH). Both destinations are the airline’s first in Russia and Switzerland respectively and are served on a seasonal basis until mid-September using winglet-equipped 757-200s. Initially, there is no competition on either of the routes; however, WOW air plans to launch weekly flights to Zurich on 15 June.
