WASHINGTON — Icelandair, which pulled out of BWI Marshall Airport in 2008, is returning with four weekly flights to Iceland’s Keflavik International Airport and connecting service to more than two dozen European cities.
Icelandair will compete directly with discount Iceland airline WOW Air, which already offers several weekly flights from BWI Marshall to Reykjavik and plans to boost service to 11 flights per week between May and September this year.
WOW Air also offers connecting service to European cities.
Icelandair will resume its BWI Marshall service May 28.
Icelandair also flies nonstop to Reykjavik from Dulles International Airport.
The new Icelandair service at BWI Marshall is the fourth new international route announced for the airport in recent months.
Air Canada adds service to Montreal in May; Spirit Airlines begins service to Montego Bay, Jamaica, in March, and tour operator Vacation Express has announced seasonal flights to Cozumel, Mexico, starting in June.
