Looking to take a trip from Chicago to Iceland in the near future? On May 12, 2015, Icelandair announced it will be starting service from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport to Reykjavik-Keflavik Airport. 

The new flights, starting March 16, 2016, will allow European travelers to fly a shorter route via the top of the world instead of traversing the vast Pacific or Atlantic oceans. 

According to the airline, Michael Boland, the acting commissioner of the Chicago Department of Aviation, looks forward to the economic activity, tourism and business opportunities that Icelandair will bring to Chicago and its home country. 

Iceland isn't just cold and snow. The land of the midnight sun is a beautiful, pristine place to enjoy action sports like kayaking and hiking, as well as relaxing in fjords while enjoying the incredible Northern lights. Icelandair offers a frequent flyers club to those who often fly with the airline. 

Icelandair already has flights to Boston, Denver, New York, Seattle and Washington D.C. with additional travel available to Minneapolis-St. Paul, Portland, and Orlando depending on the season. This is not counting other flights to Canada and throughout the globe.
