IcelandAir is adding to its international network, with their next destination to be Birmingham in the United Kingdom
The airline will operate a two-time a week service from Reykjavik to Birmingham based on the following timetable:
FI494 DEPART KEF 07:50 ARRIVE BHX 10:25 FI495 DEPART BHX 12:25 ARRIVE KEF 15:10 Commences: 5th February 2015 Booked Equipment: Boeing 757-200 - Three Operates Mondays, Thursdays.
Birmingham will be the 5th UK destination for Icelandair, with the airline serving a total of 39 destinations.
As well as providing feed to Iceland itself, it’ll provide a new gateway for passengers heading towards North America who don’t fancy changing at the traditional hubs of Amsterdam, Frankfurt or Paris when going west.
Tickets are sale, starting at £119.23 between the two cities for a single.
For Icelandair, it’s a new feed. For Birmingham Airport (especially since they’ve got their new runway extension live), it’s another airline serving the airport as it continues to grow.
Not an airline to fill that new runway extension, but it’s a start.
