COLUMBIA, MD, Dec. 10 /CNW/ - Icelandair will terminate services from
Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), effective
January 13, 2008, due to escalating costs and decreasing revenues. "We are
fine-tuning the Icelandair route network and our capacity in an effort to
increase profitability," said Jon Karl Olafsson, president and CEO of
Mid-Atlantic area travelers may be accommodated on Icelandair's flights
to Iceland and beyond via Boston and New York-JFK, where additional flights
will expand capacity up to two flights daily in peak season next year.
Icelandair will offer year round service from Canada beginning April 21,
2008 in Halifax and May 2, 2008 in Toronto. Icelandair continues US operations
in Boston, New York-JFK, Minneapolis/St. Paul (seasonal) and Orlando Sanford.
Icelandair services some 20 destinations in Scandinavia, Great Britain
and Continental Europe through its hub in Reykjavik, Iceland.
