United Airlines started today seasonal direct flights between Keflavík International Airport and its home port New York/Newark.

The airline previously offered this route between 2018-2022 but canceled the flight in the summer of 2023. It is now added to the airline’s flights between Keflavík International Airport and its home port at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport.

Keflavik Airport has announced this. It quotes Grétar Már Garðarsson, head of airlines and route development at Keflavik Airport, as saying that Keflavik Airport has had a good relationship with United in the past and looks forward to further strengthening that relationship.

United Airlines operates between the destinations on Boeing 757-200 aircraft. Flights between Keflavík International Airport and New York/Newark (EWR) began today and run until the end of October. The airline's flights between Keflavík International Airport and O'Hare Airport in Chicago began on 10 May and will run until 25 September.

“We are pleased to resume direct flights between Iceland and New York/Newark for the first time since 2022,” commented Amit Badiani, head of United Airlines sales.
