Iceland Express starts new routes to US, Canada and Europe this week


Privately-owned Iceland Express celebrates its first services to North America with the launch of flights to New York’s Newark airport (four times a week) and Winnipeg in Canada (twice a week).



Various companies have provided the airline with aircrafts since it launched in 2003. London-based Astraeus is providing five aircraft to the airline this summer, including two 757-200s, two 737-700s and a one 737-300. 


Despite the Newark and Winnipeg routes, the airline has also started new European weekly routes this week to Gdansk, Milan Bergamo and Rotterdam. This brings to 22 destinations served in Europe by the airline in summer. The only year-round services are to Alicante, Berlin, Copenhagen, Friedrichshafen, London Gatwick, London Stansted and Warsaw. The rest are seasonal summer-only (June to August) routes reflecting the seasonality of demand to and from Iceland.
