Jet2holidays’ city breaks brand has cancelled all package holidays to Iceland for the rest of the year.

The operator confirmed to travel agents that all planned departures up to and including November 19, 2020, had been cancelled.

Iceland is currently exempt from the UK Foreign Office’s blanket bans against all non essential travel. It is also, currently on the Department for Transport’s ‘travel corridor’ list, meaning there is no requirement to self-isolate for 14 days on return from the country to the UK.

But Iceland has a testing regime on arrival, meaning any UK citizen arriving in the country must either self-islate for 14 days or pay for a coronavirus test.

Jet2CityBreaks currently plans to resume operations to the destination on February 8, 2021, when flights from Glasgow depart. Holidays from other UK airports will resume throughout Febraury, March and April.

All package holidays affected will be fully refunded.

In a communication to trade partners, Jet2holidays said: “Jet2CityBreaks have taken the decision to extend the suspension of our flights and holidays programme to Iceland due to the continued Covid-19 pandemic.

“We still have plenty of holidays available to Iceland in Spring 2021 for your customers to rebook.”
