Iceland vacations and flights cheap due to Icelandic economic situation
Icelandís leading airline, Icelandair, has seen an increase in foreign sales over the past year, largely due to the Icelandic economy and the strength of foreign currencies against the Icelandic Kronur. Furthermore, confirmation by the Lonely Planet Travel Guide as a Top 10 Best Value Destination for 2010 has also caught the attention of world travelers seeking a bargain.
ďWe have been able to communicate the fact that this is the best time to visit Iceland, because as a visitor, you simply get more for your money than ever beforeĒ, says Birkir Holm Gudnason, CEO of Icelandair.
Last week Icelandair added another 3 percent to its flight schedule, which was already 10 percent up from last year, as a reaction to the rising interest in Iceland tourism. Capacity has been increased to Seattle, New York, Paris, Helsinki and Amsterdam as part of the 2010 enhanced schedule.
Icelandair, the flagship carrier of Iceland since 1937, offers service to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Seattle, and seasonal service from Minneapolis - St. Paul, Orlando Sanford, Halifax and Toronto. Connections through Icelandairís hub at Keflavik International Airport are available to over 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the UK and Continental Europe. Only Icelandair allows passengers to stopover in Iceland at no additional airfare.
