British airline easyJet has announced that they will begin flights to Iceland in March 2012.
There has long been criticism over the lack of airline competition in Iceland, to the extent that IcelandExpress managing to be on time only 60% of the time is considered “punctuality”. In some cases, lateness has been so great that damages have been awarded.
But now a new option will be available for those travelling between mainland Europe and Iceland, as easyJet has announced that they will begin flights to Iceland on March 27 of next year.
Paul Simmons, easyJet’s UK director, said of the plan, “It is hugely exciting to be able to offer easyJet flights to Iceland for the very first time. Our new route will not only be attractive for business travellers, but also for those looking for culture-rich city breaks or adventurous travellers looking for unrivalled scenery and activities.”
