The national flag carrier of Iceland, Icelandair, will expand its London network with twice-weekly flights from Gatwick to Keflavik International Airport from October 18, 2012.
Gatwick’s passengers will now have the opportunity to take advantage of a “winter weekend city break” with flights on Thursdays and Sundays.  The airline also offers an extensive route network throughout the US and Canada.
The route will be operated by a Boeing 757-200, which carries 189 passengers in a three-class cabin layout.
Guy Stephenson, the airport’s Chief Commercial Officer, stated:  “Gatwick currently has more than 20% spare capacity on its single runway, and so we are in a great position to accommodate new airlines and ensure that London remains one of the best connected cities in the world.”
