Icelandair Now with Connection to Pittsburgh

Icelandair made its first flight to the western Pennsylvania city of Pittsburgh today. This marks the 16th destination in North America for the airline, with flights four times a week to the city until the end of October.

“The North American market has been a very strong performer for us and Americans in general have come to comprise the largest share of tourists who visit Iceland,” Bogi Nils Bogason, the CEO of Icelandair, said in a statement to the press, adding that passengers from 20 different European countries have already booked flights to Pittsburgh through the airline. In addition, passengers from Pittsburgh have booked flights to 30 different European destinations.

Up until now, prospective “Yinzers” would have to travel to Baltimore, or Toronto, to get a direct flight to Iceland. These new direct flights ought to be taken advantage of while they last, as the four flights a week are expected to continue until the end of October.

By the same token, Icelanders can also now go directly to Pittsburgh without having to catch a connecting flight, saving money for such attractions as the Andy Warhol Museum, the zoo and aquarium, Point State Park and lots more.
