Icelandair is new to the Czech Republic as a carrier but the company used to own Travel Service, now Smartwings.
Starting next year, Icelandair will be the second airline to offer connections between Prague and Iceland’s Keflavik Airport. From June 1, the airline will offer four flights a week, complementing Icelandic low-cost carrier Play, which launched flights from Prague earlier this year.
Icelandair will fly direct on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays. Departure from Prague is scheduled for 2:05 p.m., arriving in Iceland at 4:00 p.m. local time. From Iceland, the flight departs at 7:30 a.m. with arrival in Prague at 1:15 p.m. Round-trip tickets are available from about CZK 8,000 without checked baggage.
The airline now offers connecting flights to Prague mostly in cooperation with KLM via Amsterdam. In addition to traveling to Iceland, passengers in Keflavik will also have connecting flights to the United States and Canada. Iceland will operate a Boeing 737 MAX 8 in a 160-passenger configuration on the line.
