Icelandair’s Vancouver Service Goes Year-Round

Due to the increasing demand to Vancouver, Icelandair will increase their current seasonal service to a full year-round schedule starting this winter.

“The flight to Vancouver has been favourable and we see opportunities to improve our transatlantic network with all the connections from Europe”, says Birkir Holm Gudnason, Icelandair’s CEO.

Icelandair offers three cabins of service with one checked bag, personal in-flight entertainment systems and gate-to-gate Wi-Fi available for all passengers.

The flight will continue to use the Boeing 757 aircraft and will depart KEF two days a week on Thursdays and Saturdays at 17:10 and arrive in YVR at 17:50; it will depart YVR on Fridays and Sundays at 15:45 and arrive at KEF at 06:00. Service will ramp up to three days a week in 2018.

Icelandair’s flights from 7 UK gateways will continue to connect with the Vancouver flights.
