Andres Jonsson, Icelandair´s UK general manager, said “Icelandair has been serving Glasgow for many years and since 2010 we have experienced a positive momentum in travel to and from Glasgow with our increased frequency, and we plan to build on that. We are very excited about 2014 and the extra capacity will allow us to offer our customers even more seamless connections to our 12 destinations in North America.”

Icelandair has clearly demonstrated its confidence in the Scottish market, which it has served since the 1940s, by adding significant new capacity for two years running.”
