Oneworld member British Airways currently offers some attractive fares for its daily nonstop service between London-Heathrow and Reykjavík, Iceland. The airline sells round trips as cheap as £70 (~€76). Even better, you can add a checked bag at the comely fee of £24 (~€26), keeping the entire offer below three figures.
Iceland has recently imposed a mandatory five-day quarantine for foreign tourists. However, this offer is valid on singular dates between October 2020 and March 2021, when measures might be eased a little.
You can choose any roundtrip up to fourteen days in our availability calendar, which will then forward you to ba.com. We only selected dates on which the cheapest fare is available.
British Airways uses Airbus A320 family aircraft with 3-3 seating on its flights to Iceland.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend to book with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
