Icelandair Will Increase Service from Glasgow and Manchester

Icelandair has announced that it will increase service from Manchester and Glasgow to Iceland and Icelandair’s connecting North American destinations. The increased service will run from September 14 to October 26 and April 12 to June 6, 2011, and adds one flight per week, on Tuesday, to the current autumn schedule from both Manchester and Glasgow. The increased service will result in five flights per week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

Flights will operate as a “triangle route” using the following routing: Reykjavik (KEF) – Manchester (MAN) – Glasgow (GLA) – Reykjavik (KEF). The schedule fits into Icelandair’s “hub and spoke” system, allowing passengers to connect onwards to Icelandair’s North American destinations.
