Icelandair to up Dublin frequency as it marks connection’s fifth anniversary

Icelandair has marked five years since it first began flying from Dublin as it prepares to increase frequency for this summer.

Since the route’s inauguration in 2018, Iceland has become a popular destination for Irish people and vice versa.

Icelandair says the route has seen “sustained commercial success” and was increased from six to nine weekly take-offs from June.

Icelandair chief executive Bogi Nils Bogason said: “We hope people in Ireland will join us as we toast to many more years of adventure and exploration.

“Icelandair strives to continue offering a best-in-class service to those in Ireland as they explore the natural wonders of Iceland and travel beyond in North America.”

The addition to Icelandair’s network provided Irish travellers the option to fly direct from Dublin to Iceland as well as domestic and Greenland connections.

Passenger can also access onward journeys to 15 destinations in North America, helping consolidate and strengthen the connecting flight service to and from the US and Canada.

Icelandair said: “The appeal for Irish people of a stopover before travelling on to America or Canada is a significant part of the offering, with the ability to add a one-to-seven-day stopover in Iceland at no additional airfare, allowing travellers to explore the wonders of Iceland when flying transatlantic – experiencing two destinations in one trip.”
