Yesterday evening, Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) welcomed the start of international service from Icelandair, a new airline for the airport. Icelandair began roundtrip flights on Monday between BWI Marshall and Keflavik International Airport in Iceland. Icelandair’s hub in Reykjavik connects with more than 25 cities across Europe. The airline offers four weekly roundtrip flights from BWI Marshall with its Boeing 757-200 aircraft.
This adds to the daily Iceland service BWI gets from WOW Air. BWI continues to set records for passenger traffic. Through March 2018, BWI set new monthly passenger records in 32 of the past 33 months. The first quarter of this year was a new record for the first three months of any year, with more than 5.9 million passengers.
Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
Icelandair has served BWI in the past. I remember seeing its aircraft there in the late 90s and in 2000.
