American Airlines is adding another new destination to its seasonal European footprint when service begins to Reykjavik-Keflavik, Iceland (KEF) next summer. Service to Iceland’s capital and largest city begins June 7 from American’s Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) hub. In September, Icelandair announced new service between Reykjavik and Dallas-Fort Worth that begins in May 2018.
“Reykjavik has become a very popular leisure destination and we look forward to giving our customers the opportunity to experience Iceland’s unique landscape of geysers, volcanoes and hot springs with our new direct service next summer,” said Vasu Raja, vice president, Network & Schedule Planning. “The new destination complements our continued growth from Dallas-Fort Worth, including Rome and Amsterdam.”
The route will be flown on a 176-seat Boeing 757-200, featuring lie-flat Business Class seats and a full suite of products including American’s innovative Casper bedding and Cole Haan amenity kits in the premium cabin.

Departs Reykjavik at 11:10 a.m., arrives Dallas-Fort Worth at 2:50 p.m.
Flights operate from June 7 (DFW-KEF) until October 27 (KEF-DFW)
