Icelandair is adding one more destination to its US route network. The Reykjavik-based Icelandair will launch service between Baltimore (BWI) and the capital of Reykjavik (KEF) on May 28, 2018.

The BWI-KEF route will offer 4x weekly service, operated by one of Icelandair’s Boeing 757-200 aircraft. Here’s the operational schedule for the route, operating on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays:

  • FI642 Baltimore (BWI) 8:35pm Departure ⇒ Reykjavik (KEF) 6:20am (+1) Arrival
  • FI643 Reykjavik (KEF) 3:05pm Departure ⇒ Baltimore (BWI) 7:25pm Arrival

Icelandair’s 757-200 features three cabins: Saga (business class with recliner seats), economy comfort and economy. Check out Brendan Dorsey’s review of the Icelandair experience in economy on a 767-300ER. Seats are available on the inaugural flight from BWI to KEF for $202 one-way. Round-trip flights seem to hover around the $300 mark. While the flights aren’t yet loaded on Google Flights, you can search directly on Icelandair’s website.

This announcement of service to BWI is the latest Icelandair expansion in the US. On Tuesday, the carrier announced it was set to begin offering nonstop service between Kansas City (MCI) and KEF. The route will serve as the first-ever nonstop transatlantic flight from MCI.

Baltimore already has nonstop service to Iceland via low-cost carrier WOW Air. Travelers can expect to pay slightly more for the Icelandair service, however, it’s a full-service carrier as opposed to WOW.

With the addition of Baltimore (BWI) to its route network, Icelandair now services the following 16 US airports: Anchorage (ANC), Baltimore (BWI), Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Cleveland (CLE), Dallas (DFW), Denver (DEN), Kansas City (MCI), Minneapolis (MSP), New York (EWR and JFK), Orlando (MCO), Philadelphia (PHL), Portland (PDX), Seattle (SEA), Tampa Bay (TPA) and Washington, DC (IAD).
