Tampa International Airport has garnered a lot of buzz as of late for their major renovations, art installations, and newly announced direct routes to the tech hub that is San Francisco and Havana, Cuba. Now, there’s more to celebrate at our local airport. Icelandair just announced new twice weekly flights between Tampa and Reykjavik beginning in September of 2017.
Reykjavik is the country’s capital and largest city. It is home to one of the wonders of the world — the Blue Lagoon spa, the Saga museum, which traces Iceland’s Viking history, and Nauthólsvík, a small neighborhood in the city that features an artificial hot spring.
The vast city offers ample opportunity to explore rugged landscape. Bike tours around the area are popular amongst visitors. You can learn a little bit more about the city via Visit Reykjavik.
This flight adds to TPA’s growing list of direct international flights. Lufthansa’s route to Frankfurt has proved extremely viable, as has Copa Airlines flights to Panama, Edelweiss’s flights to Zurich and British Airways routes to London.
