The trip will better connect BWI fliers to destinations in Europe, with Icelandair's Reykjavik hub linking to more than 25 markets across Europe. "Travelers in San Francisco can soon enjoy a great new way to get to Iceland and beyond", said Satero.
"Icelandair has been in operation for over 80 years, and these cities have played an important role in that history".
Brits flying to the U.S. have more opportunity to add a stopover in Iceland following new flights to North America with Icelandair.
Getting to Iceland - and from there Europe - just got easier for travelers in Kansas City.
"The third addition to our network marks the first time in its history that Icelandair will offer non-stop flights to and from the heart of America".
Icelandair had added three new North American gateways, introducing a new service to Kansas City and putting San Francisco and Baltimore back on the map.
The airline now offers 23 North American destinations, making it the second highest airline for the number of North American airways serviced.
The airline plans to operate between San Francisco and Keflavik International Airport four times per week, using Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, which features 25 saga business class seats, 21 economy comfort seats, and 216 economy seats.
It has been over a decade since Icelandair ceased operations to both destinations, but there has always been strong demand and support for the airline to return.
Meanwhile, the airline's service from Baltimore-Washington global (BWI) will resume from 28 May.
