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

We understand these are uncertain times, but we don't want you to stop making travel plans. If you are considering booking a new ticket, we offer you the peace of mind of being able to change your flight at a later date.

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

This policy applies until further notice and is valid for: 

  • all international flights
  • domestic flights with travel period from July 24 until August 13, 2021

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 passengers who might test positive for COVID-19 in Iceland.

We will rebook a passenger for their return home, free of charge, after they have served the mandatory self-isolation period. This applies if a positive result is returned for the COVID-19 test administered upon arrival at Keflavík airport, or the second test 4-6 days after arrival (where applicable).

For more information on official procedures if a test returns a positive result, see the covid.is website published by the Icelandic authorities.

Terms and conditions:

  • Only passengers holding a round-trip ticket with Icelandair are eligible. 
  • The passenger must present Icelandair with a certificate of COVID-19 test results issued by the Icelandic health authorities. 
  • 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.
