About this flight
The carrier: Iceland Express
Iceland Express is the only low-cost carrier with a hub in Iceland. It's also very likely the savviest budget airline in Europe, with an exciting and well-designed site. Iceland's low-fare airline connects the Icelandic capital of Reykjavík with airports in Scandinavia, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain and North America. Iceland Express runs a much expanded service in the summer.
Iceland's only budget airline sometimes offers some great deals as well as good service and friendly flight crew.
To-and-from-Iceland route map is of limited utility. Fares are sometimes expensive for a budget airline.

We love the "Icebreaker"deal section of Iceland Express' site. Check it frequently for promotions.
