Icelandair will start services to and from Brussels in June 2010. Two flights a week, on Mondays and Fridays are planned.
Icelandair CEO, Birkir Hólm Guðnason, says Icelandair has considered the route for a long time. "We have often looked at a Brussels service as the city is a major business and political center. This spring and summer we have been meeting with authorities and prospective business partners in Brussels. Increased cooperation and transaction between Iceland and Brussel brings an opportunity to start. General tourism is never the less the foundation for the route, both traffic to and from Iceland, and also those travelling between Brussels and our destinations in the U.S. and Canada", says Birkir Hólm Guðnason.
Icelandair currently serves 25 destinations, 18 in Europe and 7 in North America through its hub in Iceland.
