Icelandair Going Year-Round from YVR

Due to increased demand from Vancouver, Icelandair is increasing its current seasonal service to Iceland to a full year-round schedule starting this winter.

Icelandair offers three cabins of service with one checked bag, personal in-flight entertainment systems and gate-to-gate Wi-Fi available for all passengers.

The expanded Icelandair service will further strengthen YVR and Icelandair’s successful partnership, which started with the launch of its YVR-Keflavik International Airport (KEF) service in 2014. The flight will continue to use the Boeing 757 aircraft and will depart YVR two days a week on Fridays and Sundays at 3:45 p.m. and arrive at KEF at 6 a.m.; it will depart KEF on Thursdays and Saturdays at 5:10 p.m. and arrive in YVR at 5:50 p.m. Service will ramp up to three days a week in 2018.
