Icelandair Excellent for Business Travel

by Lexi Ryan | May 07, 2018

Kicking off Memorial Day Weekend 2018, the KC region has secured nonstop transatlantic air service for the first time on Icelandair

Through September, Icelandair will offer a direct flight to Reyjavik, Iceland, with connecting flights to 29 European markets. Passengers will be able to clear customs at Kansas City, rather than a much larger international airport, which provides an added convenience for global travelers from KC.

Icelandair not only paves the way for more potential international air service through KCI, but expands opportunities for business and leisure travelers. Read more about this competitive advantage.

KCI announced the addition of Icelandair, Kansas City’s first non-stop transatlantic service, in early January. Click here to read more about the media surrounding the announcement.
