Icelandair is today pleased to announce flights to their 20th North American gateway Dallas. 

Flights to Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport will begin on 30th May 2018 and will operate to their hub Keflavik four times per week with a Boeing 757-200 aircraft.

The new route will open up even more travel choices for UK passengers with connections from the existing 7 UK gateways Icelandair serve via their hub in Reykjavik, which now serves 20 destinations in the US. Icelandair’s updated fleet also offers travellers more legroom, in-flight entertainment, and gate-to-gate Wi-Fi.

“As we celebrate our 80th anniversary, we are pleased to offer the largest route network in Icelandair’s history,” said Birkir Holm Gudnason, Icelandair CEO. “Our new service to Dallas Fort Worth will provide a refreshing alternative for UK travellers travelling to Texas with flights via Iceland. This new route will also open opportunities for Texan travellers who want to explore the 7 UK gateways we serve. We look forward to welcoming Dallas Fort Worth aboard our network.”

Flight FI872 departs Dallas Fort Worth at 5:00 p.m. (CDT) and arrives KEF at 6:00 a.m. (GMT), Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Mondays just in time to start your day in Iceland or make easy connections to the UK. Flight FI873 departs Keflavik International at 5:15 p.m. (GMT) and arrives Dallas Fort Worth at 8:40 p.m. (CDT), Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

Icelandair passengers can take advantage of DFW’s facilities at International Terminal D that feature highly efficient customs processing, as well as world-class shopping, dining and amenities. DFW’s geographic position, size and amenities also make for convenient connections from Europe and Asia to points across North America, Central and South America.

Dallas Fort Worth International will be Icelandair’s 20 North American gateway and the first in the southern United States.
