Quoting TFJamie (Reply 1): It's a twice weekly on Thursdays (Morning) and Sundays (Afternoon) to ease the load on LHR.
Interesting, I hope they do well here.
Quoting TFJamie (Reply 1): I was not aware that FI had been there ever before.
Ahh yes your're right. I did remember seeing an Icelandair 757 a couple times before here, but just now looking on A.net it seems they were leased to Ghana International Airlines which flew from Gatwick to Accra a couple years ago.

So right now they have 2 flights a day to/from Heathrow, and now 2 flights to/from Gatwick! That's pretty amazing given that we are in a recession and the fact that Iceland has historically been a very expensive place to visit!

FI back in October announced that they plan to offer a extra weekly flight and a improved schedule on it's LGW service from 14MAY13 . The 3 x weekly service will offer more connection opportunities for passengers wishing to fly between the UK and North America compared to the current W12 schedule.
Personally i think the timings of the Icelandair flights from LGW during W12 are perfect for passengers wishing to visit Iceland for a long weekend but are not great for those wishing to connect to the carriers services to North America.
