Low-cost airline Norwegian is continuing its UK expansion with the launch of its newest route from London Gatwick to the Icelandic city of Reykjavik.
From November 1st, Norwegian’s brand new route to Iceland will take off, offering three weekly flights departing on a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday – perfect for a long weekend break.
The new route will be operated by Norwegian’s brand new 186 seat aircraft that will keep passengers connected in the skies with free inflight Wi-Fi.
Iceland is known for its stunning landscape of volcanoes, hot springs and lava fields and there is an abundance of natural beauty to explore.
From Iceland’s thermal pools at the Blue Lagoon, black beaches in South Iceland and whales watching just off the coast, as well as the chance to experience the Northern Lights, it is the perfect place to enjoy a winter escape.
Thomas Ramdahl, chief commercial officer at Norwegian said: “Our growth in the UK continues and we are excited to offer a new direct service from London Gatwick to Iceland.
“A firm favourite with Brits due to its nature landscape and outdoor activities makes it a fantastic choice for a winter break. We are the only airline offering passenger’s high quality at a low cost with free Wi-Fi, brand new aircraft and a growing route network to the most sought after destinations.”
Norwegian’s new service to Iceland will be the airlines fourth new European route to launch in the UK this winter.
