Iceland’s national airline Icelandair announced it will start seasonal service from its hub at Keflavik International Airport (KEF) to Pierre Trudeau International Airport (YUL) in Montréal, Canada.
Icelandair – Reykjavik to Montréal
This route would be the fifth Canadian city to be served by Icelandair after open skies agreement was signed between Canada and Iceland in 2007 allowing for expansion. The other cities are Halifax (1998), Toronto (2008) , Edmonton (2014) and Vancouver (2014)
Outbound arrival time allows passengers to catch dinner. Inbound arrival into Reykjavik provides connection opportunities to more than 20+ European cities.
Icelandair will use Boeing 757 aircrafts for this route. The two versions available include 183 to 216 seats configured into three cabins. Saga Class™ features recliner seats suitable for business travellers and passengers looking for more space. Economy Comfort™ has the same configuration as Economy at 3-3 but has the middle seat blocked for extra width.
All cabins have AVOD inflight entertainment system and inflight USB port. Additionally, Saga and Economy Comfort class passengers have access to an individual AC Power port.
WiFi will be available on all long haul flights by the end of 2015 and is free for Saga Class Passenger and Saga Gold members. Other travellers will pay an additional fee.
As a bonus, all passengers can take advantage of the Icelandair Stopver program and spend seven nights in Iceland for no additional fares.
“The arrival of Icelandair marks yet another significant milestone for Aéroports de Montréal and Montréal. Not only will our passengers now have non-stop access to Iceland, but they will also be able to quickly connect to Scandinavian cities like Copenhagen and Stockholm. We are very pleased to welcome this new partner,” said James Cherry, President and Chief Executive Officer of ADM.
