Six airlines are currently planning to fly to Keflavík Airport starting on June 15th, RÚV reports. This was confirmed in an interview with Icelandic aviation services operator Isavia’s public relations manager Guðjón Helgason. Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air has already resumed flights to Iceland.
The six airlines in question are the Faroese flag carrier Atlantic Airways, Czech Airlines, Icelandair, SAS, the Dutch low-cost airline Transavia, and Wizz Air, with their currently confirmed destinations being the Amsterdam, Copenhagen, the Faroe Islands, Milan, and Prague.
The local tourism website túristi.is has confirmed that Lufthansa will also resume flights to Iceland in early July. This was announced by the airline’s regional director Andreas Köstner, who clarified that Lufthansa plans to fly once a week to Munich and twice a week to Frankfurt. Guðjón says, however, that the airline has not officially reached an agreement with Isavia.
Guðjón could not confirm whether more airlines would be added to the group, but according to Isavia there are four airlines which have stated that they have no agreement to fly to Iceland over the summer: American Airlines, Air Canada, Delta, and United.
Wizz Air is running four flights to and from Iceland until Sunday: to Budapest, Gdańsk, Poland, Luton, England, and Vienna.
Isavia’s website does not show scheduled flights any later than that, and Guðjón could not confirm whether the airlines would keep flying to Iceland until June 15th. On the other hand, it is currently possible to book flights to the aforementioned destinations on Wizz Air’s website from today on.
