Airline tickets that include admission for two of Iceland’s games at the Handball World Championship in Germany were sold out in only two hours earlier this week.
Gudjón Arngrímsson, information officer at Icelandair, estimates that 300 to 500 people had bought tickets with the airline this week to watch Iceland play against Poland yesterday and Slovenia tomorrow. Morgunbladid reports.
Demand for flights to Frankfurt, Germany, has increased vastly since Iceland’s surprise victory over France on Monday. Icelandair offers four flights to Frankfurt a week.
Some passengers fly to other destinations, like Copenhagen and London, and travel to Germany from there to watch the matches. According to Morgunbladid, getting to the place is easy, but getting tickets for the games can prove difficult.
Arngrímsson said if Iceland makes it to the semi-finals, Icelandair can expect even more demand for flights to Germany.
