Icelandair commenced Reykjavik/Keflavik’s 18th US destination on 6 September with the introduction of a twice-weekly operation to Tampa. The airline already serves Orlando in Florida.
The celebrations continued in Florida, with this volcanic cake erupting to take centre stage in Tampa. Getting ready to tuck-in along with the Icelandair inaugural flight crew was Chris Minner, Executive VP of Marketing for the US airport.
- Icelandair began its 12th US destination from its Reykjavik/Keflavik hub on 6 September, with the introduction of twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Sundays) flights to Tampa (TPA). The 5,779-kilometre route is operated on the carrier’s 183-seat 757-200s and faces no direct competition. Becoming Keflavik’s 23rd route in North America, the new service further consolidates the US as the airport’s largest country market served.
