Wow, Icelandair and American all add routes from DFW to Iceland

Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport has added three new direct services with three seperate carriers to Iceland for the summer season.

Two Icelandic-based airlines, Wow air and Icelandair, will begin flying from DFW to Reykjavík–Keflavík International Airport in late May, and American Airlines will launch its Keflavik flight in early June.

Wow air will operate a three times a week Airbus A330 service from 24 May. Icelandair will utilise a Boeing 757-200 four times a week from 31 May and American Airlines a daily service from 7 June with a 757-200.

DFW’s executive vice president of global strategy and development, John Ackerman said: “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.”

Between the two Icelandic carriers, DFW customers will have access to 39 destinations in Europe and the Middle East. American Airlines connects travellers to Iceland through its largest hub.
