Frequency to a number of destinations has been increased and for the first-time day flights to New York and Boston are added to the winter schedule, putting weekly flights up to 11 from Reykjavik to Boston, and 21 from Reykjavik to New York.

Stopover flexibility

The year-round daytime flights to Boston and New York offer a comfortable departure time from Iceland, as well as numerous connections onwards to destinations all around the US via its partnership with JetBlue.
