Icelandair is doubling frequency from Gatwick to help boost short breaks and connecting transatlantic travel.
Frequency to Reykjavik is rising from two flights a week to three services in May and four a week from September 13.
The airline started services from Gatwick in October due to constraints at Heathrow.
Chief executive Birkir Hólm Guðnason said: “We fly twice daily from Heathrow, which is our main airport in London. Gatwick, however, will provide us with further growth which is not available at Heathrow.
“By increasing the frequency at Gatwick, we hope to enhance further growth to increase the number of holiday seekers to Iceland over the winter months. We are also excited about building up new markets for our connecting flights to destinations in USA and Canada.”
The Gatwick flights will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays to help drive city breaks from UK to Iceland.
Icelandair also confirmed new flights to Toronto from next month as the airline’s fifth year-round North American gateway along with New York, Boston, Denver and Seattle.
