Anchorage, St. Petersburg, and Zurich will be added to Icelandair’s list of destinations making the schedule of international flights the largest in the company’s history, reports.

Higher growth is expected during the winter months, in line with the company’s aim to reduce seasonal fluctuations.

A record number of tourists have visited Iceland this year. In 2011, 565,000 tourists visited the country and numbers are up by more than 18 percent this year.
