Gatwick to Iceland flights announced

Icelandair is set to launch flights to Keflavik International Airport from Gatwick.

The airline will operate twice-weekly Gatwick flights (Thursdays and Sundays) from18 October 2012 using a Boeing 757-200.

Birkir Holm Gudnason, Icelandair’s CEO said: “Operating from Gatwick will give our UK customers greater choice.

“Over the past few years we have seen a surge in demand for winter travel to Iceland due to the popularity of the Northern Lights, year-round whale watching and events like Iceland Airwaves. Gatwick will also give us the option of further growth in London and provide a link to our many partners with connecting flights to destinations throughout Europe and more remote destinations in Asia.”
