Iceland Express tunes down ambitions

Airline cuts six Europe routes in summer 2013 schedules

Iceland Express will cut six routes in its summer 2013 schedules, namely to Basel, Bologna, Cologne, Gothenburg, Krakow and Prague, while launching flights instead to Oslo and Frankfurt, putting it in competition with Icelandair, Norwegian and SAS. This means the airline will offer only nine European destinations next summer, the other seven being Alicante, Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Paris and Warsaw. It will also resume its flights to the United States with a daily service to Boston.
Iceland Express is behaving more cautiously than Iceland’s other low-cost carrier, WOW Air, which appears to be maintaining 13 destinations on its summer program for 2013.
