    It has not been widely reported but Keflavik Airport in Iceland, the country’s main international hub, is currently closed because of further volcanic eruptions. Icelandair and Iceland Express have relocated their services elsewhere in Iceland and Icelandair are currently using Glasgow as their hub to and from Iceland, European points and JFK/BOS. For example, they are operating LHR and CDG to GLA services, connecting to onward flights to the US and to Akureyri in northern Iceland. Driving past Glasgow Airport last night was odd – I counted 5 Icelandair aircraft on the apron. This is a really practical attempt to manage a difficult situation and the airline are surely to be commended.

    Martyn,

    As I’ve said elsewhere, it’s all down to them changing their name from Bejams IMHO.

    Hmm. I think that one probably sounded better in rehearsal. 😉
