Icelandair, the largest brand of commercial aviation in Iceland, steps up its effort for air travel demand to the country by adding two weekly flights to Reykjavik from London’s Gatwick airport.
LONDON - April 3, 2013 - PRLog -- According to Opodo Travel News, Icelandair will be increasing its flight frequency to four weekly flights from London Gatwick Airport to its home base of Reykjavik in Iceland.

   The flights will attend to catering a distinguished passenger market with availing larger passenger demand for the winter season on the route. By increasing number of flights in the upcoming new season, clients will have more convenience of choosing suitable schedules under the new offer. While primarily utilizing London Heathrow for the route, passengers have the alternative of avoiding congestion by utilizing London Gatwick for the purpose.

 The airline is already operating two weekly flights to Reykjavik ( ) from London Gatwick Airport. Flight frequency on the route will be increased to three weekly flights in May and four weekly flights in September. The reliance of all prospective growth for operations in London will be focused on Gatwick airport under the airline due to congestion concerns at Heathrow Airport, which is being served by two daily flights under the air carrier.

   TravelhouseUK has listed down bargain deals for destinations serviced from all of UK’s airports under international air carriers. The agency also covers the destination network of Icelandair, with flights to New York ( ), Washington, Orlando, Toronto and Denver available for booking according to the online database of the official website.

 Raised from a small town settlement to an economic establishment for the country, Reykjavik is the capital city of Iceland located alongside Faxafloi Bay. The city is recognized to be the northernmost urban regions of the world, and is revered for its landscape forming the background of snow-capped hills accompanied by evergreen forests. The administration spans around its suburbs consisting of a total of ten districts for managing its large size. “The diversion of growth from Heathrow to Gatwick airport for the commercial aviation sector in London is one healthy initiative in the shorter run” said Victor Hunt, the operations manager at TravelhouseUK. “It helps maintain equilibrium while allowing growth to remain uninterrupted without getting effected from traffic congestion.”

“Destinations which have a seasonal impact on passenger demand such as Iceland have a specified period for profitable operations. If such routes get affected due to unavailability of slots, they would be turned down due to lesser returns and infeasibility in the longer run”.
     Icelandair ( ) is the primary operator of commercial aviation for the island of Iceland, and is based in Keflavik International Airport in the capital city of Reykjavik. The airline has divided its operations between regular and seasonal flights in light of passenger demand, and has a destination coverage ranging from America and Europe for trans-Atlantic routes. As of current standings, the air carrier operates an all-Boeing fleet, while all pending orders for new aircraft are placed with Boeing accordingly.
