Icelandair’s summer 2021 seat capacity will be 25%-30% less than last year’s pre-Covid levels due to the effects of the pandemic.

The route network will be simplified, with the airline serving 22 European destinations and 10 in North America.

Up to 30 flights a week between Iceland and UK and Ireland are part of Icelandair‘s planned 2021 summer schedule.

Flights to and from London, Glasgow, Manchester and Dublin are planned including connections between Europe, the US and Canada.

Transatlantic destinations include Boston, New York, Seattle, Minneapolis, Washington, Denver, Chicago, Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal.

Flights to Tenerife will be introduced as part of the schedule to run between May and September next year.

The schedule is subject to the pandemic improving both in Europe and North America, and the easing of travel restrictions at the Icelandic border.

Chief executive Bogi Nils Bogason said: “Despite difficult conditions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is important to look to the future and be well prepared to act as soon as the situation in the world improves.

“Our summer schedule for 2021 reflects that. We are committed to providing efficient air services to and from Iceland, as well as attractive options across the Atlantic.

“Iceland will continue to be a popular tourist destination and the ideal place to visit in times like these – it is safe, clean, healthy and spacious with a small population. 

“Our flexible booking policies also ensure that our customers can book with confidence. With good planning and a flexible route network, we are in a good position to scale up quickly as soon as markets open again.”
