A new direct flight from Aberdeen to Iceland is expected to cut “several hours” off journeys to North America from the North-east.
Icelandair is to begin its new year-round service from Aberdeen International Airport to Reykjavik tomorrow.
The flight will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
And it will provide easy connections to Icelandair’s 16 flights to North America.
It is understood journeys from Aberdeen could be cut by at least two hours.
Destinations in North America include Orlando, New York, Boston, Denver, Washington, Seattle and Montreal.
Passengers will not go through pre-clearance before heading to America unlike when they travel though airports such as Dublin, meaning they will have to go through customs when they arrive at their destination.
The new route from the operator is the first to offer passengers direct flights from Aberdeen to Iceland.
