Flights to Iceland to resume from London Gatwick
Low cost airline Iceland Express will begin scheduled flights from Gatwick to Reykjavik in September 2008 after BA suspended its service this spring.
Iceland’s budget airline Iceland Express has announced it will offer five flights a week between London Gatwick and Reykjavik starting 16 September 2008.
The flights between London Gatwick and Iceland will start at GBP 69 each way, including taxes.
“We have wanted to expand into Gatwick for some time and the decision by British Airways to suspend their services to Reykjavik earlier this year means that the time is now right to do so,” says Birna Gudmundsdottir, Iceland Express marketing manager.
The UK is one of the most popular destinations for travelling Icelanders, both for visiting the country and for changing flights in London. In addition, UK tourists make up the largest group of foreigners visiting Iceland.
Iceland Express was the first airline to bring low cost flights to Iceland when it started budget flights from London Stansted and Copenhagen in 2003. Now in its fifth year, the airline serves 15 airports around Europe and Gatwick will become Iceland Express’s 16th destination.
Passengers had grown used to having three gateways to London, and Iceland Express wants to give passengers back the choice and convenience that comes with direct services from Iceland to London Gatwick.
Iceland Express continues to attract both business and leisure travellers who book cheap flight tickets to Iceland through the airline’s award winning website or through travel agents or tour operators.
Flights between London Gatwick and Iceland are already on sale through the Iceland Express website at: www.IcelandExpress.com.
