Air Canada has resumed scheduled flights between Canada and Keflavík Airport. The airline has not offered direct flights to Iceland since 2019.
Several flights to Keflavík a week
As air traffic around the world approaches pre-pandemic levels, new airline routes are regularly introduced. Today, Isavia announced that Air Canada – Canada’s largest airline by fleet size and passengers carried – had resumed summer flights to Keflavík Airport. The airline last flew to Iceland in 2019.
Air Canada will offer flights between Keflavík and Toronto four times a week and flights between Keflavík and Montreal three times a week. Flights will be offered until early October.
“We sincerely welcome Air Canada back to Keflavík Airport after two difficult pandemic years,” Grétar Már Garðarsson, Director of Isavia’s Airline Relations and Route Development stated. “Air Canada is a much-valued collaborator, and we look forward to developing our important relationship in the coming years. The return of Air Canada is a clear sign that Iceland is an exciting and popular destination.”
The same press release also quotes Marc Sam, Head of Air Canada’s Sales and Marketing Department in the Nordic and Baltic region: “These are exciting times for our clients in Iceland, who can now begin to plan their next trip to rediscover Canada. Direct flights to Toronto and Montreal will allow our customers to fly straight to Canada and continue onward to destinations in North and South America. We’re excited to welcome our customers aboard.”
