From next year, Icelandair will increase its services between Reykjavik and Glasgow.

Starting March 19, Icelandair will introduce an extra flight between Iceland’s capital and Glasgow, Scotland, meaning operations will increase from five-times weekly to a six-times weekly.

Icelandair will deploy a Boeing B757-200 on the new service. It will depart Reykjavik on Saturdays at 07.35 and arrive in Glasgow at 09.40. In the opposite direction, the flight will depart Glasgow at 14.05 and land in Reykjavik at 15.25.

Andres Jonsson, Iceland’s general UK manager, said: “Demand from our longest serving international gateway is strong and we look forward to offering more options of flying to Iceland and connecting into our network to US and Canada.”

Icelandair has also announced plans to launch a year-round, four-times weekly service between Reykjavik and Aberdeen next year.
