The new service will launch on October 18, departing on Thursday and Sunday, operated by B757-200 aircraft configured for three classes.

Icelandair currently offers a daily service between London Heathrow and Reykjavik. Rival carrier Iceland Express flies from Gatwick, and is also set to restart services from Stansted in June (see online news March 2).
