Expect Significant Disruptions

Dec 11, 2019

Severe winter weather is expected to cause significant disruptions across Iceland from 10-11 December 2019. The Icelandic Met Office issued a red alert — the highest level of alert on a three-tier warning system — in the northeastern parts of the country due to wind gusts of up to 115 kph (70 mph) and blizzard conditions. Government officials closed all roads into Reykjavik for a 24-hour period, including the connection to Keflavik International Airport (BIKF/KEF), beginning at 1200 local time/UTC on 10 December. Most domestic flights were canceled after 1000 local time and most international departures, including those operated by easyJet, Icelandair, Norwegian Air and Transavia, scheduled in the afternoon hours have also been canceled. Officials have warned travelers against undertaking ground travel during the storm.
