More Options to Vancouver Year-Round

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

Vancouver is the largest city on the west coast of Canada with about 2.3 million inhabitants.

It is a breathtakingly beautiful place, and in the past has been chosen as the best city in the world to live in. "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.

Vancouver’s proximity to Whistler Ski Resort attracts people from all over the world. Whistler hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics and is one of the best alpine destinations in the world.

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 expanded Icelandair service will further strengthen Vancouver airport and Icelandair’s successful partnership, which started with the launch of its Vancouver-Reyjavik service in 2014.

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 seven UK gateways including Belfast City Airport (from June) will continue to connect with the Vancouver flights. Flights from Belfast are operated by Air Iceland.
