Dec 10, 2007, 00:00 ET from Icelandair

    COLUMBIA, Md., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 Icelandair.
     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.
