Icelandair to return to Glasgow Airport

May 8, 2009

Following the decision earlier in the year to suspend flights from Glasgow Airport due to worsening economic conditions in its homeland, Icelandair has announced that it is set to resume operations on August 27.

The airline has a 60-year history of operating flights from Glasgow, transporting passengers from the airport to the unforgettable Icelandic capital of Reykjavik. Its return to operations will see twice weekly flights to the destination resume this summer.

Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: "This is excellent news for anyone interested in visiting this historic and fascinating country. The strength of the pound against the Krona means that Iceland now offers real value as a city break destination.

"With its world-class restaurants, lively nightlife and superb natural attractions, Iceland is one of the must-see destinations of 2009."

To mark the return of the route, Icelandair is offering a three night city break in Reykjavik from £249 per person, including flights and four-star accommodation. For further details, visit
