Jet2 has brought forward the launch of scheduled services to Iceland from 2 September 2021 as the destination is tipped to be one of a very few countries on the UK Government’s green travel list from 17 May.
The operator said it is seeing strong demand for its flights and city breaks to Reykjavik.
It will offer twice-weekly flights from Manchester from 2 September and from Birmingham from 30 September until 22 November.
In addition, scheduled services will operate from Manchester from 10 February to 10 November 2022 and from 10 February to 25 April from Birmingham.
Jet2 said it was giving customers the option to see the Northern Lights and also offering greater flexibility with stays of three nights or more available over the October, February and Easter half-terms.
In addition to its programme of scheduled flights, Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks are operating 37 three- and four-night trips to Iceland from seven other UK bases, 15 from September to November 2021 and 22 from February to April 2022.
British holidaymakers are expected to be allowed to travel to Iceland without the need to quarantine when returning to the UK once the ban on foreign holidays is lifted due to its relatively low COVID rates. However, at the moment Iceland has a ban on UK holidaymakers.
