Flying to Iceland in the coming weeks to months? Following the cancellation of all WOW Air flights (here’s what to do if you were booked on a WOW flight), there’s now another potential travel hiccup to be aware of. From the U.K.’s travel advisory page on Iceland:

“As wage negotiations continue with some unions in Iceland, there may be disruptions to bus and coach services between Keflavik International Airport and Reykjavik due to planned industrial action. This is likely to last 48 to 72 hours at a time throughout Spring 2019 and other airports in Iceland may also be affected. Before travelling, you should contact the bus or coach company you intend to travel with for the latest information and factor in any possible delays to your journey time. Taxis will continue to operate, but are expensive.”

Unless you rent a car at the airport or have arranged private pick-up, bus service to Reykjavik (about 45 minutes) is likely a part of your journey (see: An Afternoon in Reykjavik to Watch the World Cup). Make sure to know what you’re in for before you arrive.
