Toronto Gets a Taste of Europe VIA Icelandair

Quincy, MA, August 23, 2016 – Iceland’s premier airline, Icelandair, will take to the streets of Toronto between September 7 – 11, 2016 to give Torontonians a taste of Europe and chances to win trips VIA Icelandair.

While most travellers know Icelandair flies to Iceland, the airline wants Toronto to know they can also fly VIA Icelandair to 28 destinations in Europe with gate-to-gate Wi-Fi, personal in-flight entertainment and some of the fastest travel times from Toronto-Pearson International.

Icelandair will sponsor an airplane-inspired food truck ready to serve-up European classics representative of the delicacies one may find served in one of Icelandair’s top destinations. Choices will include Fish & Chips from the U.K (Birmingham, London, Manchester, Glasgow, Aberdeen), Swedish meatballs from Sweden (Stockholm, Gothenburg), French Macarons from France (Paris), and Swiss chocolates from Switzerland (Zurich).

The food truck, appropriately named Eyjafjallajökull, after one of Iceland’s most famous volcanoes, will visit three Toronto locations (schedule below).


  • September 7th: Adelaide Centre (333 Bay St, Toronto, ON M5H 4G3)  11am – 6pm
  • September 8th: RBC Plaza (200 Bay St, Toronto, ON M5J 2J2)    11am – 6pm
  • September 9th: Royal Thomson Hall (60 Simcoe St, Toronto, ON M5J 2H5)  12pm -11pm
  • September 10th: Royal Thomson Hall (60 Simcoe St, Toronto, ON M5J 2H5) 10am -11pm  
  • September 11th: Royal Thomson Hall (60 Simcoe St, Toronto, ON M5J 2H5) 10am -11pm

A select group of lucky diners will not only receive a complimentary meal, but may also find a special winning ticket good for a trip for two to any Icelandair destination.

For those that are not so hungry but can still picture themselves a winner, Icelandair will also be sponsoring a photo booth where hopeful travellers can snap their image into one of four scenic backgrounds. Sharing their photo online using #viaicelandair then provides another chance to win a trip for two to any of Icelandair’s European destinations.

Participants who do not win a trip will still have a chance to receive a $100 off gift certificate, which can be applied to any future Icelandair booking. With the special fares Icelandair will be offering from Toronto during the events, lucky travellers will be finding significant savings, making everyone a winner.
