On Wednesday (October 21, 2020), Icelandair announced their planned summer 2021 schedule with 32 destinations in Europe and North America including new service to Tenerife, Canary Islands. The schedule will reflect a reduced seat capacity of around 25-30 percent compared to 2019 and is dependent on an improvement in the COVID-19 situation in the company’s markets in Europe and North America, as well as an easing of restrictions at the Icelandic border.

The schedule’s 22 European destinations include service to Oslo, Bergen, Copenhagen, Billund, Stockholm, Helsinki, Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich, Geneva, Zurich, Brussels, London, Glasgow, Manchester, Dublin, Madrid, Milan and Tenerife. The carrier also intends to fly to ten destinations in North America including Boston, New York, Seattle, Minneapolis, Washington, Denver, Chicago, Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal. Additionally, Icelandair will also offer regular charter flights to Alicante. In Wednesday’s announcement, Icelandair’s President and CEO, 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.”

Icelandair has implemented a flexible booking policy allowing customers to book their travel with confidence. If a guest’s flight is cancelled, the carrier will arrange flights to other Icelandair or partner airline destinations at no additional cost. In the event a customer chooses not to travel after a flight is cancelled, travel dates can be changed without fees or customers can choose between a travel voucher (which will be valid for three years) or a full refund. Customers can also change upcoming flights at any time without a change fee.
