EasyJet could be a good choice since it just started to fly to Iceland. Every spring new companies start to fly to Iceland. About 500.000 foreigners fly to Iceland annually and growing. Many Icelanders go abroad and some of them fly many times a year because of business. So many air carriers find it a marked worthwhile to service.

Why not try Alternative RoutesBe flexible on route. Direct flights are always more expensive than connecting ones. So by picking a connection flight route you will save money. It is more work but will most likely save you money.
Remember, Not All Search Engines are EqualWhen you use Search Engines, do not always go for the big ones like Expedia, they charge the carrier and the low fare airlines won’t be there. Try out Skyscanner they won’t charge the carrier and therefore they have lower prices, Kayak and Momondo works the same. Check out few before you book
