Icelandair continues to expand its reach across the Atlantic with a new addition to its list of U.S. destinations.
On May 18, 2023, the Icelandic carrier will inaugurate service from Reykjavik’s Keflavik Airport (KEF) to Detroit (DTW).
Here’s all the information you need about Icelandair’s new route to Detroit.
Icelandair Adds Nonstop Service From Detroit to Reykjavik
Iceland’s newest route for 2023 will be a seasonal summer service connecting Reykjavik with Detroit.
Flights will be available from May 18, 2023, through October 20, 2023, when the airline will revert to its winter schedule.
The service will operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays with the following schedule:
- Depart Reykjavik (KEF) 4:55 p.m. — Arrive Detroit (DTW) 7:20 p.m.
- Depart Detroit (DTW) 8:30 p.m. — Arrive Reykjavik (KEF) 6:30 a.m. (+1)
The inauguration of Icelandair’s service from Detroit to Reykjavik will herald just the seventh nonstop service from the largest city in Michigan to Europe, joining Amsterdam (AMS), Frankfurt (FRA), London (LHR), Munich (MUC), Paris (CDG), and Rome (FCO).
Detroiters and those in the surrounding state of Michigan will be able to benefit from not only a new nonstop service to Iceland but also the onward connections to over 30 European destinations that the airline offers, as well as domestic services within Iceland and back west to Greenland.
Detroit will become the 12th U.S. city with nonstop service to Reykjavik thanks to Icelandair.
Hot Tip: Did you know Icelandair and JetBlue have a codeshare agreement? In a nutshell, the codeshare means if Icelandair doesn’t fly from your closest airport, you can hop on a JetBlue flight instead and connect seamlessly onto an Icelandair flight to Iceland and beyond through Boston (BOS), New York (JFK), and Newark (EWR).
Tickets are on sale now at Icelandair.com. The lowest economy return trip fares we’re seeing start at $515.
Citizens of Detroit and wider Michigan will soon have the opportunity to take a nonstop flight to Iceland, which is, without doubt, one of the most unique and magical countries in the world to visit.
An added perk of Icelandair’s nonstop service to Reykjavik is that it offers connections to over 30 more destinations on the European mainland.
With return fares from as low as $515, there’s no time like the present to tick off that bucket list trip!
