Icelandair is seeing some love from D.C. residents after launching its 2013 marketing campaign in the city.

The airline’s first quarter advertising campaign is currently running in Seattle, Denver, Boston, New York, Toronto and Washington, D.C.

The campaign includes digital ads, billboard spots, and the below video ad that highlights the opportunity for U.S. passengers to take an extended stopover in Iceland on transatlantic flights at no additional cost.
