London Gatwick airport to replace Stansted for Icelandic flights

Wed, 15 Apr, 2009

London Gatwick airport will be used for Iceland Expresses' flights from next month, it has been announced.

The airline is ceasing its daily service at Stansted on 30th April and beginning a nine-times-weekly route from the Sussex hub to Reykjavik from May 1st.

Fares of £49 one-way are available to the first 3,000 passengers who book to fly on the new service between 20th and 22nd April. They must travel between 1st and 31st May to benefit from the discount.

A holiday to north European destination might be a great choice for budget-conscious holidaymakers according to the firm's chief executive officer Matthias Imsland.

"With the weak Icelandic krona, there has never been a better time to visit," he said.

Travellers looking to park their car at Gatwick should follow signs for flight departures if they are going to the north terminal or take the route to flight arrivals if they are heading for the south terminal.
