Latest forecast for volcanic ash in Iceland - 9 May
Sunday 9, May 2010
Like some other European airports Keflavík International Airport will likely close temporarily on the 9th and 10th of May, due to volcanic ash concentration being above operable levels.
European originating Trans-Atlantic Icelandair passengers will be routed to their final destination via Glasgow. Icelandair will operate direct flights between Glasgow to Boston, New York and Seattle.
Passengers travelling to and from Iceland will have the option of being re-routed through Glasgow to/from Akureyri airport, which is located in a 4 hour driving distance from Reykjavík, or Keflavík airport when it is open. Passengers are requested to pay close attention to changes in their departure or arrival gateways. Affected passengers should contact their travel agents, or for direct bookings only, call the customer line +354 5050100
Icelandair continues to monitor the situation along with aviation safety guidelines and will not operate flights unless cleared by Air Traffic Authorities.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
