US Citizens Encouraged to Return Home from Iceland

Vala Hafstað

The US Embassy in Iceland encourages all US citizens not prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period to return to the US. The embassy posted the following message on its Facebook page last night:

“HEALTH ALERT: The only remaining confirmed Icelandair flights to the United States are to Boston on April 8 and 15. U.S. citizens who wish to return to the United States should make commercial arrangements now unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period. 

Please do not wait. After April 15, Icelandair will reassess flight needs and may fly cargo only. The U.S. government does not anticipate arranging repatriation flights in #Iceland at this time.”
