Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks have brought forward the start of scheduled Iceland flights to September 2 to cater for demand.
The airline and its city breaks sister brand expect Iceland to be included on the UK government’s green list, which is due to be revealed later this week.
Jet2.com now offers a bigger programme of scheduled services to Iceland from Manchester airport this year, in addition to scheduled services from Birmingham airport.
Steve Heapy, chief executive of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “We are seeing strong demand for flights and holidays to Iceland, as customers look to enjoy its beauty and natural wonders after a year of lockdowns and restrictions.
“Iceland is expected to be on the UK government’s green list, and, as we are seeing right across the board, when customers have clarity they are booking in huge numbers.
“With a great programme of scheduled flights operating from Manchester and Birmingham, in addition to 37 once-in-a-lifetime trips from seven of our other UK bases, customers have great choice and flexibility when it comes to visiting this bucket list destination.”
Twice-weekly services will operate from September 2 from Manchester, and from September 30 from Birmingham – both until November 22, 2021.
Next year, scheduled services will operate from February 10-November 10, 2022, from Manchester, and from February 10-April 25, 2022, from Birmingham.
Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks are also offering 37 three- and four-night dedicated trips to Iceland from seven other UK bases: Belfast International, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Stansted airports.
There will be 15 trips between September and November 2021, and a further 22 trips between February and April 2022.
Attractions include watching the Northern Lights, exploring the capital Reykjavik, and visiting the Golden Circle and its geothermal lagoons, spas and waterfalls.
