Fly to Reykjavik with Icelandair: New route from Tegel into the land of volcanoes and geysers

03.11.2017

Velkomin um borð! Icelandair now connects Berlin Tegel to Reykjavik in Ice-land three times a week. The airline will fly to the world’s northernmost capital every Monday, Friday and Sunday.

Birkir Holm Gudnason, CEO of Icelandair: “Today we celebrate the opening of our new service from Berlin, one of the great cities of Europe,” says Birkir Holm Gudnason, Icelandair CEO “Berlin is a welcome destination for our Icelandic and North American travellers wanting to explore and enjoy this historic city. The new route will enable German travellers to have more choice in discovering Iceland and will offer them a smooth alternative for travel onwards to over 20 North American destinations with of course an option of a stopover in Iceland for up to 7 nights for no additional airfare.”

Elmar Kleinert, COO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: “With Icelandair we welcome a new airline at Berlin Tegel. The new route is of course not only attractive to naturelovers and Iceland-holidaymakers. Reykjavik is the perfect stopover location for travellers to and from North America and enriches our flight itinerary. We wish Icelandair much prosperity and a successful development in Berlin.”

The flight time to Reykjavik is about three and a half hours. All routes are operated by Boeing 757 aircraft.

Iceland – Natural Landscape and the Northern Lights

Whether it is volcanoes, mountains, glaciers or the famous geysers – Iceland’s natural landscape leaves nothing to be desired. Breathtaking sunsets make the ice shine red in the winter months and make for unforgettable moments. If you are lucky, on clear winter nights you can see flickering green stripes in the sky, the so-called Northern Lights, which bathe the landscape in a magical light.

A good starting point for exploring the island is its capital, Reykjavik. The gateway to Iceland combines tradition and modernity. The cosmopolitan metropolis offers visitors numerous activities, excursions and a vibrant nightlife. A must for every visitor is a trip to the Sun Voyager sculpture (Icelandic: Sólfar) by artist Jón Gunnar Árnason, which recreates a ship and points towards the sunset.
