The company says nonstop flights to Anchorage from its hub in Reykjavik, Iceland, will begin May 15. The flights to and from Anchorage are roughly 7 hours, the airline said.

Icelandair says in a news release that flights are planned twice a week until mid-September 2013.

The airline already offers service to Iceland from Boston, New York, Seattle and Denver. Anchorage joins Washington, D.C.; Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.; Orlando, Fla.; Halifax, Nova Scotia; and Toronto with seasonal flights.
