COVID-19 travel information

Through travel we connect people and places, and connections are more important now than ever. We know you have questions, so we’ve prepared a list of answers to help you plan.

Book now, change later

If you’re considering booking a new ticket, we offer you the peace of mind of being able to change your flight at a later date. Flex fares have additional reassurance, as these permit a refund if you need to cancel. 

If you book a Standard or Flex fare now, you have the option to change your booking later without a change fee. Fare difference may apply. 

Please note: Economy Light tickets issued on or after April 4 2022 (based on the most recent ticketing date) cannot be changed.

This policy applies until further notice and is valid for all international flights.

Simply covered – our safeguard for your travels

In addition to our current policies for changing or canceling a booking, we offer travel protection that gives you extra coverage for potential costs, such as flight cancellations or medical treatment during your travel (including COVID-19).

You can add the travel protection during the booking process. Read more on our Covid Plus Medical Cover* and on our Cancellation Protection.

*Currently only available in Europe (excluding Russia).

Simply return home

We want to provide extra peace of mind for our passengers who are visiting Iceland on a round-trip ticket and might test positive for COVID-19 while traveling in Iceland.

If a positive result is returned for a COVID-19 test administered in Iceland, we will rebook a passenger for their return home, free of charge, when they can travel again. 

Terms and conditions:

  • Only passengers holding a round-trip ticket with Icelandair are eligible. 
  • The passenger can only change the date of the ticket once.
  • The passenger must present Icelandair with a certificate of COVID-19 test results issued by the health authorities. A rapid antigen certificate issued by competent health authorities is sufficient.
  • Other passengers in the same booking may also avail of the free rebooking upon request. 
  • In the case of group bookings with more than 9 passengers, only passengers who are diagnosed with COVID-19 and their immediate family members (children, parents, partner) may avail of the free rebooking policy and not other passengers.
  • Applies only to Icelandair flights.
  • This is valid regardless of the passenger's fare family or destination.
