The flights will operate from London Gatwick to Reykjavík, mid-day on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays making it ideal for city breaks from UK to Iceland.

Icelandair‘s schedule for 2013 will be the largest in its 76-year history. Icelandair flies from 4 gateways in the UK to Iceland with connecting service to New York, Boston, Seattle, Denver, Orlando, Washington DC, Toronto, Anchorage, Halifax, and Minneapolis/St. Paul.
