Icelandair launches 10th US destination: on board

Icelandair Keflavik/Reykjavik to Portland

The first departure from Iceland to Portland in Oregon was celebrated with a delicious cake (we know, we tried it!). Despite the damp conditions the first departure was on time.

In Portland, the first departure to Iceland on 20 May was celebrated with a volcano/northern lights themed cake, a ribbon cutting ceremony and some live Icelandic music. The 757 (“Hekla Aurora”), resplendent in its northern lights themed livery, looked much better in the bright Oregon sunshine as it headed back home.
