WOW air introduces more flights from Gatwick

Icelandic airline WOW air has increased its number of weekly return flights from London Gatwick to Reykjavik. From June 2013 the airline will increase its flight numbers from 6 return flights a week to 13.

The airline will run a twice-daily service to Reykjavik from Gatwick Monday through Friday and a daily flight on Saturdays. The decision to add more flights comes as Iceland gears up for a summer packed with art and cultural festivities that are expected to attract many visitors. Director of communications at WOW air Svana Fridriksdottir said that the airline “was really excited to be increasing from six return flights to 13 return flights from London to Reykjavik.”

“As Iceland’s cheekiest airline, we aim to get as many intrepid travellers over to Iceland so they can experience the beauty and fun of the country,” she added.

The summer schedule will run until the start of September 2013 giving visitors to Iceland more flight options over the summer. Extended daylight hours in the summer means visitors will have more time to visits Iceland’s many natural wonders including the spouting geysers, black sand beaches, glaciers and active volcanoes .

“We are delighted to welcome WOW Air and its passengers to the airport today,” said Matt Wood, head of airline relations at Gatwick Airport. “Reykjavik saw a 12% increase in UK tourists between 2010-11, and we feel that by adding this twice-weekly service we are catering for our passengers who want to visit phenomena’s such as the Northern Lights.”

WOW air has also announced it will be adding two new aircraft from March of this year and that it will also be increasing its fleet of Airbus A320’s.
