Iceland Express Impresses
When we heard this week that little-known European low cost carrier Iceland Express had won an award for the best LCC website, we were instantly intrigued. And while cheap flights in and out of Iceland might not be a top priority on too many traveling agendas, keeping in touch with Iceland Express's website and especially their blog might get you to change your mind.
For a start, the basic Iceland Express website is so clean and refreshing looking that you basically want to book your flight immediately. Move on to the airline's blog and you'll be well and truly hooked. Posts include topics like "How to get a date with an Icelander", info on Icelandic events like the Reykjavík Gay Pride Festival and tips on where to hang out in Iceland, like in a street called Skólavörðustígur.
So far flights operate from Reykjavik to a dozen major destinations like Paris, Berlin and London; we recommend using Iceland Express to get to Skólavörðustígur before the rest of the world finds out how to pronounce it.
