Icelandair moves flight schedule to Glasgow due to closure of Keflavik Airport
In response to the closure of Keflavik International Airport, Icelandair this morning announced its new flight plan for the next 48 hours. Icelandair flights that were scheduled to take place on Saturday 24th April and Sunday 25th April will now be flying out of Glasgow International Airport in Scotland.
The Icelandic airline company has been working hard to find alternative flight plans as it finds itself in a similar situation that many other airlines throughout Europe have already experienced over the past week. Despite the closure of the Keflavik airport, Icelandair will be flying transatlantic flights to New York and Boston and also European flights to Copenhagen, Oslo, Amsterdam and London from Glasgow. In addition to this, there will also be two flights a day from Glasgow to Akureyri in the north of Iceland.
Icelandair encourages passengers to monitor news and information about flight schedules at www.icelandair.us as changes could still occur with little notice due to the unpredictability of the situation. Furthermore, Icelandairís services will be open all weekend ready to help passengers with any additional enquires.
The closure of Keflavik International Airport is due to ash fall in the surrounding area from the volcano at Eyjafjallajokull. Icelandairís preparations have been focused on keeping operations going, keeping a flight path between Iceland and the rest of the world open and also providing great customer service. Crew, technicians, managers and client services have already been moved to Glasgow and will be employed there for as long as is required.
