Icelandair Expands to Kansas City

Iceland based budget-carrier Icelandair announced they are adding Kansas City to their route network in May 2018. This will be Icelandair’s third new U.S. route for 2018.

Icelandair’s new routes in  2018:

  • Cleveland on May 16th
  • Kansas City on May 25th
  • Dallas on May 31st 

We are fans of Icelandair as they allow you to pick your seats and carry-on one 22lb bag, at no extra charge. You will have to pay extra for food and alcoholic beverages, but pack a couple snacks and you’ll be good to go. Icelandair features seatback entertainment and fancy gate to gate WiFi.

Bottom Line 

More routes and more competition is always good for the consumer. Look for the new route to pop up on a Thrifty Traveler Premium email soon. If you’ve never given Icelandair a shot, I’d definitely recommend it. It’s a simple no-frills airline, but one I know many Thrifty Traveler readers love.
