The Flybus service to and from Keflavík International Airport has been discontinued indefinitely. Reykjavík Excursions, the company that runs the service, announced the decision late last week. Flybus has been the only service operating direct buses between the capital area and Keflavík Airport for at least six months.
According to a notice from the company, the Flybus service was discontinued “due to a restricted flight schedule.” Keflavík Airport’s schedule for today shows a total of three flights: two arriving and one departing.
Due to a restricted flight schedule, Flybus will not operate for the time being.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this…
Reykjavík Excursions CEO Björn Ragnarsson told Fréttablaðið the decision will not lead to any layoffs, as drivers will be transferred to Strætó public buses system (RE is a subcontractor of Strætó and operates several bus lines in the capital area).
All travellers arriving to Iceland from abroad are required to undergo double testing and a five-day quarantine. To arrive at their quarantine location, travellers may take a taxi, rent a car at the airport and drive themselves, or pick up a car that has been left at the airport for them by a friend or family member. Being picked up by friends or family is considered a breach of quarantine regulations, as is taking the No. 55 public bus through Reykjanes.
