Icelandair to increase Reykjavik flights
Icelandair has announced plans to up capacity on its route between London and Reykjavik.
The carrier said it intends to increase the Heathrow service to two flights a day from summer 2008 as part of widespread changes to its North Atlantic schedule - including the addition of Toronto as a destination and the scrapping of services to Baltimore.
It also stated that it will continue to provide flights to Reykjavik from Manchester and Glasgow airports next year.
"We have expanded considerably over the past few years, so the focus in 2008 is on making adjustments to our network," commented Jon Karl Olafsson, chief executive of Icelandair.
The airline also offers a number of non-direct flights from Heathrow Airport to Boston, New York, Washington, Minneapolis-St Paul, Orlando and Halifax.
Last week, Icelandair announced that 30 per cent of its passengers now use self-service kiosks at its Reykjavik base to complete check-in procedures.
