Velkomin Iceland Express
December 23, 2009
Christmas is almost here! and I'm so proud of myself that I don't have to venture into another mall. Just a few last minute pick ups at the airport...books, magazines, stuffed Olympic mascots and, of course...cheese!
We received some excting news today that I hope will make the Icelandic community in Winnipeg and Manitoba very happy.
Beginning in June 2010, travellers will be able to fly directly to Reykjavik, Iceland (KEF) from Winnipeg (YWG). After taking in the beauty of Iceland's landscapes (though I've only seen pictures) travellers can connect to over 20 European mainland destinations on Iceland Express, operated by Astraeus Airlines.
Maybe we'll even be able to entice some native Icelanders to come visit. And Gimli's only a 90 minute drive from here!
