Reykjavík Excursions will resume their Keflavík Airport bus service for arriving passengers from tomorrow, February 27. The bus service was suspended indefinitely in January this year, due to the restricted flight schedule to and from Iceland.

In a Reykjavík Excursions notice, CEO Björn Ragnarsson stated that the recent discussion on the importance of public transport to ensure the continued success of border restrictions was the reason for reinstating the bus service. The Icelandic Transport Authority has posted updated guidelines for operating coach services, which now include instructions on how to transport passengers already in quarantine, as is the case for arriving passengers. This includes wearing masks covering the mouth and nose for the whole trip, social distance of two metres when possible, with the two rows behind the bus driver empty, and each bus should only transport passengers arriving on the same flight. The bus is also to be thoroughly disinfected in between journeys and proper ventilation is required.

Björn also stated that the decision to resume the bus service was made in cooperation with the authorities and Isavia. All arriving passengers will now be able to take the bus from the airport, stopping in Hafnrfjörður, Garðabær, Kópavogur and in the city centre. The service is currently only available for arriving passengers but departing travellers have a wider range of options available to them as they are not generally in quarantine during their journey.
