Icelandair bringing back non-stop flights from San Francisco to Iceland

Icelandair has announced the return of direct service between Reykjavik, Iceland (KEF) and San Francisco, California (SFO). The flights will begin on June 1, 2018, with four non-stop flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursday, and Saturdays.

Currently, you can only fly non-stop to Iceland from San Francisco on budget airline WOW air. In addition to offering more on-board services than WOW air (such as a free checked bag), Icelandair is a partner of Alaska Airlines, meaning you can redeem your Alaska MileagePlan miles for a direct flight to Iceland and also earn miles on it.

Since WOW air often offers flights for as low as $99 one-way from SFO to Reykjavik, Icelandair will have to keep ticket prices low to be competitive.
