Clients travelling to Michigan will soon be able to enjoy an additional stay in Iceland thanks to a new service between Reykjavik and Detroit with Icelandair.
The seasonal service will begin from May 18 2023, restoring a nonstop connection between the cities after an absence of four years.
Four flights per week will operate between Reykjavik Keflavik and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Flights will run through to 30 October.
Michigan is inviting travellers to twin a stay in the state with Iceland as part of Icelandair’s stopover programme, which enables travellers to stay for up to seven nights in Iceland, just paying the extra taxes and fees.
Travellers can enjoy the country’s waterfalls, hot springs and Northern Lights before jetting to Michigan to explore the Great Lakes, Mowtown Music and its own display of Aurora Borealis which are most active in April, October, and November.
Speaking at Unite USA, Yolanda Fletcher of Pure Michigan, said: “Not many people are aware that you can see the Northern Lights in Michigan, so this is a great selling hook with the new Icelandair flights and stopover package.
“Once in Michigan you must encourage clients to visit the Hitsville Mowtown Museum which has just undergone a huge renovation.”
