Icelandair has announced three new North American gateways, introducing a new service to Kansas City and putting San Francisco and Baltimore back on the map.

Inaugural flights to the new destinations will begin in late May and early June, offering connections between the UK and North America and more choice for UK passengers, adding to the existing six UK gateways that the airline serves via its hub in Reykjavik.

Bjorgolfur Johannsson, CEO of the airline, said: “The time is right for us to return to Baltimore and San Francisco. Icelandair has been in operation for more than 80 years, and these cities have played an important role in that history. The third addition to our network marks the first time in its history that Icelandair will offer non-stop flights to and from the heart of America. Today our network is bigger and stronger than ever, and we offer our passengers more flights, more connections, and a refreshing alternative to Iceland and beyond. We look forward to once again welcoming San Francisco and Baltimore on board, and we warmly welcome Kansas City.”

Flights operating three times a week to Kansas City International Airport in Missouri will commence on May 25 whilst services to San Francisco, California and Baltimore, Maryland, will re-commence on June 1 and May 28, respectively, and flying four times weekly.
