Quincy, MA, March 14, 2011 – Icelandair is pleased to announce new flight service into Glasgow and Manchester starting September 20, 2011.  Icelandair will separate their current 4 weekly triangle flights into the popular U.K destinations and operate 2 independent flights per week into Manchester and 3 independent flights per week into Glasgow.

“We are pleased to operate routes to both Glasgow and Manchester independent of each other, the new flight schedule will optimize connectivity and elapse time. This is a positive improvement for the Icelandair network and we will utilize it to support further growth to the U.K," said Thorsteinn Egilsson, Icelandair’s General Manager of The Americas.

In addition to Manchester and Glasgow, Icelandair also operates daily service into London Heathrow. The 2011 Icelandair schedule features new gateways from the U.S., more destinations in Europe and the largest flight schedule in its 74 year history.

Icelandair, the national carrier of Iceland, offers service to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Seattle, and seasonal service from Washington, D.C., Minneapolis - St. Paul, Orlando Sanford, Halifax and Toronto. Connections through Icelandair’s hub at Keflavik International Airport are available to over 20 destinations in Scandinavia, the U.K. and Continental Europe.
