Dallas Fort Worth Airport: 3 new flights, 2 new airlines, 1 new cool destination
Customers at Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport have three new, nonstop flights to Iceland just in time for the peak summer travel season. Two Icelandic-based airlines, Wow air and Icelandair, will begin flying from DFW to Reykjavík–Keflavík (KEF) International Airport in late May, and American Airlines will launch its KEF flight in early June.
“The new flights to Iceland represent even more choices for our customers and the entire Dallas Fort Worth region,” said John Ackerman, DFW’s executive vice president of Global Strategy and Development. “One of our top goals at DFW Airport is to grow international passenger and cargo air service to kindle new business and travel opportunities in our home region. The addition of three routes to this beautiful new destination shows the strength of demand for international travel to and from North Texas.”
Iceland is an increasingly popular tourist destination and has become a convenient stopover for travelers connecting to Europe. Between the two Icelandic carriers, DFW customers will have access to 39 destinations in Europe and the Middle East. American Airlines connects travelers to Iceland through its largest hub.
