Ireland will be a welcome destination for our Icelanders and North American travellers wanting to explore.  The new route will enable Irish travellers to have more choice in discovering Iceland and will offer them a smooth alternative for travel onwards to over 20 North American destinations with of course an option of a stopover in Iceland for up to 7 nights for no additional airfare.”
