Travel is our passion – and that’s why we continue to do it. Through travel we connect people and places, and connections are more important now than ever.
Here's what you need to know about flying to the USA with us.
Note: if you plan to fly from the USA to Iceland, read important information on our Iceland is open! page.
We have offered some important links with Boston during the past few months, and will continue to provide flights connecting Keflavík and Boston twice a week in June.
In July, our flight schedule will increase in frequency between Keflavík and Boston. In addition, we will add flights to a number of destinations in the US, including Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis, New York (JFK), Seattle and Washington DC (Dulles).
Please note that the increase in destinations and frequency forecast for July is subject to the opening of the US borders as well as the external borders of the Schengen area.
See updates to our flight schedule for the coming weeks.
We understand the need for reassurance, so we encourage you to read more about the current situation in the US visiting these official websites of the US authorities:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - Cases in the U.S. (data)
John Hopkins University & Medicine - Coronavirus Resource Center
Note that certain areas of the USA have a higher rate of cases than others - you can check these online:

As countries open up again, travel restrictions are fast-changing. Travelers should look into the current rules that apply to them for the destination they wish to visit (for example, requirements for a COVID test or possible quarantine, what documentation is required), and also for rules that apply to their return trip (for example, the need to quarantine after returning home).
Restrictions and limitations on entry to the USA
From the US Embassy in Iceland:
'A Presidential Proclamation issued on March 11, 2020, sets certain temporary restrictions and limitations on entry into the United States of persons who have been in the Schengen Area, including Iceland, during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States.
The restrictions do not apply to U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents.'
Different cities and states may apply different rules.
Flights to Boston: All travelers arriving to Massachusetts are instructed to self-quarantine for 14 days.
USA: Read the recommendations from US authorities at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, specifically 'What can I expect when arriving to the United States?' under International Travel.
As countries open up again, restrictions are often changing. These are excellent resources for up-to-date information surrounding issues such as wearing face masks, social distancing, and gathering bans.
