ICELANDAIR CONTINUES TWICE-WEEKLY FLIGHTS FROM ORLANDO IN SUMMER AND SCHEDULES SERVICE FROM FORT LAUDERDALE FOR SEPTEMBER

 NEW YORK, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of an effort to focus on the Florida market, Icelandair is continuing its twice-weekly flights to Europe throughout the summer from Orlando International Airport. The airline has been servicing Orlando all year except during the summer, with two of its main overseas destinations being Copenhagen in Scandinavia and Luxembourg in the heart of Europe.
 Most fares to Luxembourg allow use of a rental car for as low as $19 for one wee, and most fares to Scandinavia offer use of a rental car for one week at $39. With both rates two people must travel together. These rates include unlimited mileage and VAT.
 In addition, most of Icelandair's tickets to Scandinavia, the United Kingdom and Amsterdam carry with them a $45-bonus voucher that may be applied toward another ticket on any Icelandair route, stopover costs and travel-related items. For reservations and further information, travelers should contact their travel agent or Icelandair at 1-800-223-5500.
 "Flights to Copenhagen as well as to Oslo and Stockholm have been gaining in popularity from the Florida region," says Sigfus Erlingsson, vice president, Americas, Icelandair. "We anticipate that this trend will continue, especially with the addition of Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport in September."
 The international carrier had originally planned to begin servicing Fort Lauderdale this summer, but with heavy demands of European routes the company determined that the aircraft can be utilized more efficiently overseas during the summer season. Within the United States, beginning April 4, very good connections will be available with U.S. Air, Icelandair's co-operating carrier, between Baltimore- Washington International and Fort Lauderdale International airports.
 Icelandair has the youngest fleet in the skies, and the airline's destinations total 20, including Iceland, which can be visited as a sole destination or as a stopover. Taking advantage of the stopover opportunity allows passengers to see two destinations for the price of one airfare, and travelers can reap great value through Icelandair's stopover packages for up to three nights.
