Iceland based budget-carrier Icelandair announced they are adding San Francisco (SFO) back to their route network in June 2018, after last serving SFO in 2006. Seasonal service will begin June 3rd and end October 13th. This will be Icelandair’s fifth new U.S. route for 2018, and hot on the heels of the Kansas City and Baltimore announcements this week.


Icelandair’s new routes in  2018:

  • Cleveland on May 16th
  • Kansas City on May 25th
  • Baltimore on May 28th
  • Dallas on May 31st 
  • San Francisco on June 3rd

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.
