Via Robert comes even more airline news: Halifax will again be an Icelandair gateway. Nothing is showing up on their reservations site yet, but methinks this might be a way of getting to reboot this year while avoiding London and Frankfurt and getting to see Iceland at the same time.
Update: There’s a special page on the Icelandair website specifically for booking from Halifax. Looking at dates in late May and early June, looks like the lowest return fares are in the $700 Canadian range, all taxes and fees in, which isn’t bad.
I’ve always had a curious desire to visit Iceland, and was disappointed when they stopped flying from Halifax (getting there via Boston, New York, or London would be a bit much). I hope the prices are reasonable.
I had the same desire to visit Iceland and took advantage of the stop over on the way home from Europe. It was well worth it. I don’t think I would have made Iceland a destination on its own but since the option was available it made sense. A beautiful place with friendly people. The only downside was the heavy preponderance of pickled fish on all the menus.
