Icelandair announced they will begin offering transatlantic flights between Kansas City, Missouri, and multiple cities in Europe beginning in May. Icelandair’s announcement comes as Kansas City International Airport moves forward with plans for a billion-dollar single-terminal renovation project.
“Icelandair has been in operation for over 80 years with a long and illustrious history,” said Bjorgolfur Johannsson, CEO of Icelandair. “But today marks the first time in that history that Icelandair will offer nonstop flights to and from the heart of America to Iceland and beyond. This will not only benefit families and leisure travelers wanting to explore the world but will also open up many opportunities for business, trade and foreign relations between Europe and Kansas City.”
“Icelandair has made an excellent choice in connecting Kansas City to their growing network,” said Pat Klein, Kansas City’s Aviation Director. “In addition to nonstop access to one of the fastest-growing tourism destinations, passengers will also appreciate the ease of transiting through Iceland on their way to Europe.”
