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
Icelandair services some 20 destinations in Scandinavia, Great Britain
and Continental Europe through its hub in Reykjavik, Iceland.
