[Fly] Iceland – To Amsterdam with Icelandair

Flying to Amsterdam from Iceland KEF, other than Icelandair, there is also Wow airline who fly directly to Amsterdam. Why did we choose Icelandair?

As the national plane of Iceland, they also have Aurora painted on their plane, however, it is not daily flight and you will only get to know the destination the plane is flying three days before your departure.
