Icelandair Will Launch Service to Anchorage (and 2 Other Cities) in Summer 2013

To those of you new to OTR, I swear that I don’t only write about Icelandair. Really, I promise.

That said, I thought I’d pass along that Icelandair will launch twice weekly service next summer between Anchorage and Keflavik, Iceland. I was going to say that you could use the Icelandair points buying deal to get to Iceland reasonably from Anchorage, but the flights are actually pretty (relatively) cheap: about $700 round trip during the summer.

The good news for folks in Anchorage is that this opens up a moderately reasonable way to get to Europe during the summer. Tickets to Europe (for the cities I checked) are less than $900 round trip, about $400 or so (at least) less than other options to Europe. It’s only 2 days a week, but beggars can’t be choosers.

Icelandair will also launch twice weekly service to Zurich and St. Petersburg for the 2013 summer season.
