On their website, Manchester isn't on the list of airports they serve! However, they do admit to flying from there.

It's 3 hours for checkin at London, so would imagine Manchester would be the same. You can checkin online 22 hours before the flight.

I emailed Iceland Air to ask about check-in time for Heathrow and they told me two hours.

My e-ticket has the same check in time, ie 3hrs, so I assume it's real .... but ridiculous.

Return from Keflavik is 2hrs.

Icelandair check-in at both London and Glasgow opens 3 hours prior to departure. I've never flown out of Manchester, but I would assume the same.

I've had very variable experiences at Heathrow over the past 27 years of flying to Iceland. Considering only more recent travel (after 9/11), mainly I've been checked in and through security within one hour, but there have been several occasions where the complete process has taken over two hours, mainly due to security queues. At Heathrow, Icelandair usually opens the gate 60 minutes before departure, and begins boarding as early as 30 minutes prior.

So, whilst three hours might seem excessive, at times it can be quite marginal.

I would assume that Manchester could be similar.
