Icelandair Adds Detroit to its Network

Icelandair has announced Detroit as its newest North American gateway starting 2023. Seasonal flights from Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) to Reykjavík's Keflavík International Airport (KEF) will begin May 18, 2023 with four weekly nonstop flights through October 30, 2023. Flight 872 will depart from Detroit at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Return flight 873 will depart Reykjavik at 5 p.m. on the same days and arrive at 6:25 p.m.

The flight from Detroit to Reykjavik takes approximately six hours, with connections available at KEF to over 25 destinations in Iceland, Greenland, the U.K., Scandinavia and Europe. Icelandair passengers can also take a stopover in Iceland for up to seven nights at no additional airfare, en route to their final destination.

“Icelandair’s DTW service will allow passengers to travel to and from Europe in new, fuel-efficient planes with modern amenities, including gate-to-gate Wi-Fi and inflight entertainment available for all passengers,” said Bogi Nils Bogason, president and CEO of Icelandair Group. “These new flights will not only help meet the demands of a growing Detroit but also offer more options for Midwestern business and leisure travelers connecting from the Midwest region. We look forward to welcoming Detroit aboard.”

Detroit is the second-largest regional economy in the Midwest. DTW serves over 125 destinations and this new service will allow passengers from all over the U.S. to connect through DTW to Iceland and beyond.

Icelandair is offering round-trip fares to Iceland and select destinations in Europe for travel from May 18–October 30, 2023, for bookings made by December 4, 2022.
