Bostonians can soon fly Delta Air Lines to Reykjavík, Iceland, where gorgeous landscapes and the world-renowned Blue Lagoon await.
The Atlanta-based airline will launch nonstop daily service from Logan International Airport to Keflavík International Airport in Reykjavík, Iceland, on May 20. It is the first leisure destination in Europe easily accessible to U.S. travelers since the coronavirus pandemic began, according to Delta, due to the country’s recent exemption of fully vaccinated travelers from border measures such as testing and quarantine.
“We know our customers are eager to safely get back out into the world, including exploring one of the globe’s most beautiful outdoor destinations,” said Joe Esposito, senior vice president of network planning for Delta, in a statement. “As confidence in travel rises, we hope more countries continue reopening to vaccinated travelers, which mean more opportunities to reconnect customers to the people and places that matter most.”
Delta will use the 193-seat Boeing 757-200 for the new flights, featuring Delta Premium Select and Delta Comfort+ along with main cabin service. The flight will leave Boston at 10:25 p.m. and arrive in Reykjavík at 7:45 a.m. Flights will depart Reykjavík at 10:15 a.m. and arrive in Boston at noon.
The Blue Lagoon, a year-round spa with surrounding black lava fields and fluorescent blue 102-degree water that renews itself every 48 hours, is a 15-minute drive from Keflavík International Airport. It is one of Iceland’s most popular attractions.
Travelers must provide proof of full vaccination or recovery from COVID-19 when going to Iceland, according to Delta, and will need a negative COVID-19 test when returning to the U.S. International travelers can find information about testing on Delta’s testing resource page.
Delta’s Iceland services are operated in conjunction with the airline’s partners Air France-KLM and Virgin Atlantic. The carrier is also resuming service to Reykjavík from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport on May 1 and Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport on May 27.
