Icelandair to fly Gatwick to Iceland four times weekly

The lack of capacity at Heathrow has meant good news for Gatwick Airport and its flights to Iceland.

Icelandair, which operates twice-daily flights to Iceland from Heathrow and twice-weekly flights from Gatwick, has announced it is adding an extra Gatwick flight to Iceland in September.

The airline introduced Gatwick to Iceland flights in October 2012 and has already announced it is increasing services to three times weekly in May. The introduction of an extra weekly flight on 13 September will take flights to four times per week.

“The good reaction we have had for our Gatwick flights are very pleasing” says Birkir Hólm Guðnason, CEO of Icelandair.

“We fly twice daily from Heathrow, which is our main airport in London. Gatwick, however will provide us with further growth which is not available at Heathrow. By increasing the frequency at Gatwick, we hope to enhance further growth to increase the number of holiday seekers to Iceland over the winter months.”
