Icelandair is expanding its network with the introduction of new seasonal service from Montreal beginning May 19, 2016.
Flights from Pierre Trudeau International Airport will mark the arrival of the airline’s first gateway in the province of Quebec, and 16th in North America.
Four flights a week will be offered from Canada’s second largest city through Nov. 8, 2016 with departures on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The five-hour, non-stop flight to Icelandair’s hub at Keflavik International Airport also provides connections to more than 20 destinations in Europe, including Paris, London, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo.
Following the commencement of service from Halifax in 1998, new Canadian gateways were launched including Toronto in 2008, Edmonton and Vancouver in 2014, and now Montreal beginning in 2016.
“Montreal will be our fifth Canadian gateway, opening the skies to Europe from Canada’s second largest city. The addition of Montreal will give Canadians coast to coast more options in travel from Canada and provide both the business and leisure traveller a refreshing alternative when travelling to Iceland and beyond,” said Icelandair CEO Birkir Holm Gudnason.
