Preparing for takeoff: WRAL is Iceland bound

Icelandair will have direct flights from RDU beginning Thursday May 12, 2022.

WRAL Engagement Editor Donna Natosi is on the way to Iceland with a crew from CBC. She posted this story on before leaving the country:

A team from WRAL News is headed to Iceland this week on Raleigh-Durham International Airport’s first IcelandAir flight.

WRAL meteorologist Kat Campbell will be joined by a group of photographers and editors to give you a taste of Iceland, and hopefully inspire you to take a trip somewhere new!

With this new direct flight available, visiting Iceland is now more of a possibility.

Iceland is a popular tourist destination, filled with lava rocks, epic waterfalls and black beaches. (And if you time your visit right, you just may be able to see the Northern Lights).

Travelers in the Triangle area will now be able to fly direct to Iceland, or use it as a midway point on their way to Europe. Flights will be available Thursdays, Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Our crew left Raleigh on Thursday. Over the next five days, we’ll bring you daily reports online, on social media and on WRAL-TV.


Thanks to WRAL-TV’s Donna Natosi for this Capcom story.
