AFAIK Air Berlin will be one of only two LoCo's to serve Iceland, when they commence two weekly flights from both DUS and MUC to Keflavik between May and September this year. The other LoCo is Iceland Express

Not unless they can force the airports into a stinking good deal, which probably isn't going to happen for the sake of FI.

This is more likely knowing Ryanair...

These are the same flights that happend the last and the year before allready.
Only that it is now an AirBerlin flight number.
Before LTU was the operating carrier. And as you all know, AirBerlin has bought LTU.

Any chance we might see U2 in KEF? BA are dropping their LGW to KEF link from March... perhaps U2 might take it on? What's the flight time?


Next flights: LGW-LBA-LGW, LHR-SIN-SYD, SYD-BKK-LHR, LGW-GRO, GRO-CIA, CIA-MAD, MAD-LGW

About 3 and a half hours; quite long for a loco; though not as bad as the ATH trips.

Yes there are, Atlantic Airways operates this three times a week with the BAe 146-200 or the RJ100, but usually the former. It takes about an hour and a half - I flew it last April, and is one of the few international flights to depart from Reykjavik city airport. Costs quite a bit though, £120 one way IIRC.

Hi Dan,

You can add germanwings to the list, flying CGN-KEF beginning in June. IIRC, they'll fly twice weekly.

Iceland has great tourist potential but everything about it is hideously expensive.  Wow!

Maybe with more tourists via Air Berlin the prices there might become a little more competitive.

3.5+ hours when departing Luton. Last november we had strong head winds on the westbound leg and it took us 4 hrs 20 mins to get back from Athens.

Thanks for the info Signol!

But I can not understand why this route is not scheduled in Amadeus.net...

Also the RJ85.  Wink I've seen all of them here, CRG (deceased), RCA, RCB, RCC, RCD, RCE and FJE, lately, it's been quite much of RCD and RCE.

Quoting RAFVC10 (Reply 9):

Yeah, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Only seen them on Mondays and Fridays in the past, it could be they're not doing Wednesdays until spring.

In the summer, we sometimes get them every single day, for a few weeks!

Ah yes, I'd forgotten that they had started replacing the -200s with the RJ85. The summer service increases I think because several flights continue to Greenland, although I am not sure which ones.

Quoting RAFVC10 (Reply 9):

Hi Gerard, they are scheduled flights and they do show in the likes of Opodo, but when it actually comes to booking them through these systems there is always an 'error' which stops you from doing so. I booked my flight through http://www.airiceland.is/ who code share on the route with Atlantic Airways. It wasn't quite as much for the airfare as I thought - £102 one way (booked months in advance), so I must have been confusing it with the onwards flight from FAE to CPH which checking back through my booking references was indeed £120. It got a bit confusing in the end as FaroeJet who I had booked with went bankrupt and were bought out by Atlantic, but luckily the reservations were all transferred automatically.

Great scenery, I can recommend visiting both the Faroes and Iceland.

Thanks for the info Dan.

It's strange to see many flights of RC from FAE to ABZ or CPH and not to KEF but doesn't matter. I added the Opodo and Air Iceland website to my favourites if anytime want to fly to Faroe Islands.

Thanks for all guys!!

Gerard

U2 are also getting the ex GT longer sectors next month... so maybe if they're model works on the longer routes they will consider LGW to KEF from the winter 2008 schedule? I think it could work.
