There were almost 100 more flights between Iceland and the United States last month than in May 2014, according to the Icelandic tourism and travel website turisti.is.

Of the 24,000 extra tourists in Iceland in May 2015 as compared to a year before, 9,000 were American.

Last May, Icelandair was the only airline flying to the United States from Iceland. Since then they have increased their number of US flights by 37.

Icelandair has been joined this year by WOW air (36 flights in May 2015) and Delta (30 flights).
