Icelandair has announced their newest North American gateway: Cleveland, Ohio. Non-stop service to Keflavik, Iceland will launch in May 2018 with four flights a week. In addition, connections to more than 25 destinations in Europe will be available through the airlines hub in Iceland.
Located on the shores of Lake Erie, in the heart of the Midwest, Cleveland will be Icelandair’s 19th gateway in North-America. With a population of 2.2 million inhabitants, the city has a vast industrial history and is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Sports enthusiasts will also recognize Cleveland’s basketball team, the Cavaliers, led by one of the brightest stars of the NBA, LeBron James.
“Cleveland is the perfect destination for our route network. We are happy to be the first carrier to provide service to Europe in 8 years. This addition also strengthens our route network and bridges Europe and Cleveland together by providing direct service to Iceland in addition to quick and convenient connections to 30 destinations in Europe,” says Icelandair CEO Birkir Holm Gudnason.
