Iceland Celebration Announced as Icelandair Reopens Flights to Iceland From Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - February 9, 2011) - It has recently been announced that Iceland's leading airline, Icelandair is celebrating its reopening of flights to Iceland from Washington, D.C. with a unique Icelandic festival titled, 'A Taste of Iceland,' featuring music, film and food.

The event, in cooperation with Iceland Naturally and a host of Washington, D.C. establishments, is set to take place February 24 - 27, 2011. The 'A Taste of Iceland' event will give Washingtonians an appetizer of what Iceland has to offer since the announcement of Icelandair's new non-stop service from Washington Dulles International Airport starting May 17th, 2011.

As a strong supporter of arts and culture, Icelandair looks forward to strengthening the bridge between Washington, D.C. and Europe while bringing some of Iceland's hottest celebrity chefs, up-and-coming bands, and latest film releases to the Baltimore-Washington area for 'A Taste of Iceland.'

"Icelandair is no stranger to the Baltimore-Washington market and we look forward to serving the metropolitan area that we called home for nearly 15 years. Dulles Airport will offer convenient connectivity for U.S. travellers and will serve the large international market surrounding Washington, D.C.," said Thorsteinn Egilsson, Icelandair's General Manager for The Americas.
