Icelandair Spreads Its Wings to Pittsburgh

Icelandair Expands Its Horizon to Pittsburgh

May 16th saw the inauguration of Icelandair’s seasonal nonstop flight from Pittsburgh to Iceland, which is their sixteenth destination in North America. Many more people will now be able to easily get to Reykjavik and this is a dream come true for many. It’s great news for holiday makers as well, giving them an additional way into the US.

From May 23rd till October 31st, Icelandair's Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft will take off four times weekly into previously unseen heights. With its busy streets that are nothing like Iceland’s Otherworldly landscapes, this might be the way (or not) out.

Bogi Nils Bogason, President and CEO of Icelandair said that this new route is crucial because North America has been their stronghold market with many Americans visiting Iceland each year.These bookings have also been encouraging thus far; there are bookings from 25 European cities looking forward to exploring Pittsburgh and local residents who have reserved flights to thirty different destinations across Europe!

Pittsburgh lies at the confluence of three rivers in western Pennsylvania and boasts more bridges than any other city in the world – hence its nickname ‘the city of bridges’. However, it is so much more than that. Located right in the heart of Pennsylvania there is plenty of culture, beautiful public parks, historic landmarks and enough sport activities for any sports fans - without forgetting all those fantastic outdoor pursuits just waiting on your doorstep!
