Icelandair is an airline that comes with big upsides and downsides. An upside: you can add a stopover in Iceland and explore the island – a great experience. The downside: the flights don’t include anything other than a carry-on bag – not even a snack. Currently, however, there’s an additional upside: the price! You can fly from Copenhagen to New York for only €276 (~DKK 2,053)!
Our calendar displays all available dates for trips of 3 to 21 days. You can get the cheapest price by booking through an OTA. Booking directly on Icelandair’s website costs roughly €45 more, but is sadly necessary if you want to fly with luggage or add a stopover in Iceland.
The flights from Copenhagen to Iceland’s capital are operated with a Boeing 767, as are the flights to New York. Booking a fare that includes luggage is also possible and would increase the price by roughly €145 (~DKK 1,078) – which is no longer an attractive price.
