Record in Canceled Flights in Iceland

The weather has been unusually crazy in Iceland this winter, leaving commuter blizzard-struck on roads and grounding flights. A new record was set at domestic airline Air Iceland when 90 flights were canceled in the first nine days of February.

The airline’s managing director Árni Gunnarsson told Stöð 2 on Tuesday this week that of the 27 flights scheduled that day, only four flights weren’t canceled, two flights to Egilsstaðir in East Iceland and back.

In February, the situation has been particularly bad regarding flights to Ísafjörður in the West Fjords where approximately every other flight has been canceled. Árni is hoping that the weather situation is about to improve.
