Edinburgh, Fife & East Scotland

New flight from Edinburgh to Iceland

A new air route between Scotland and Iceland will open this summer.

Budget airline Iceland Express is offering flights from Edinburgh to Reykjavik between June and August this year.

The low-fare airline will be flying to the Icelandic capital from Edinburgh on Mondays and Thursdays from 23 June.

Heimir Mar Petursson, of Iceland Express said: "The flights are well-timed to offer travellers a long weekend away in the colourful capital.

"Reykjavik is the perfect city break, and with nature on its doorstep, the options for your Iceland getaway are endless."

If it is popular, the airline plans to extend the route.
