As the extratropical cyclone rolls over Iceland today, numerous services have been closed in the southern part of the country for most of the day today. This, unfortunately, also includes air travel both domestic and international, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Árni Gunnarsson, the managing director of domestic flights company Air Iceland Connect, told Vísir that all domestic flights—as in, flights between locations in Iceland—have been cancelled today. Which is sensible, seeing how the storm is expected to move from the southwest to the northeast until the early morning hours of tomorrow.

International flights have also been cancelled or delayed, but there is hope. Guðjón Helgason, the public relations representative for Isavia, the company which operates Keflavík International Airport, told reporters that we can expect operations to return to normal after 15:00 today. This is around the time when the storm is expected to be completely departed from the southwest of the country.

You can get up-to-date information on arrivals and departures from the international airport here. And if you’re in South Iceland today, please do not travel anywhere until after 15:00 today.
