Iceland Express, a new Icelandic low-cost carrier will start daily year-round flights to London and Copenhagen on February 27th, 2003.

A 737-300 jet has been leased from Astraeus, which will also provide the flight crew. Cabin crew will be Icelandic.

The 148 seat 737 jet will make a morning flight to Copehagen and an afternoon flight to London.

Bookings will start on January 9th, 2003.

The Iceland Express homepage is currently only available in Icelandic, but will shortly be available in English (.com & .co.uk) and Danish (.dk) also.

Is Kaupmannahöfn a secondary airport for CPH?

I don't know yet, but I presume they will fly to London Stansted (as most low-cost carriers do).

There is only one International Airport (CPH) in Copenhagen. "Kaupmannahöfn" is the Icelandic name of the city.

Glasgow would seem a good destination head to head with the quite expensive Icelandair

Most likely STN but I wouldn't be surprised to see them at LTN.

ATI has an in-depth article about Iceland Express. This is the former 'Pro' operation which was almost launched earlier this year.

Mmmh. If Go didn't make much money on the Reykjavik route, then it's hard to imagine an Icelandic airline doing much better. (And, if Go had made any money, they'd have offered the route again this summer, which they didn't)

I'm sceptical about the chances of success. But that doesn't mean I won't fly with 'em if they offer Ryanair or Germanwings-alike introductory prices...

Regards

Ikarus
