VANCOUVER — Icelandair has expanded its seasonal service between Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and Keflavik International Airport (KEF) to year-round.
Icelandair began seasonal service from Vancouver on May 14, 2014 and has continued to see increased demand. The flight will continue to use the Boeing 757 aircraft and will depart YVR two days a week on Fridays and Sundays at 15:45 and arrive at KEF at 06:00. Return, it will depart KEF on Thursdays and Saturdays at 17:10 and arriving in YVR at 17:50.
Service will ramp up to three days a week in 2018.
“I would like to thank Icelandair and our tourism partners for their continued support,” said Craig Richmond, YVR’s President & CEO. “Together, we have laid the foundation for this increased service, which will further develop YVR as a world-class connecting hub by linking our passengers and businesses with an incredible destination—and key connecting hubs in Europe. This means more opportunities for travel, education and business.”
