If you think you caught a glimpse of the beautiful Northern Lights on the 5th February at Birmingham Airport…you are almost right.
Icelandair have launched a new route and as of the 5th, you can fly on Mondays and Thursdays between Birmingham and Reykjavik, and they have repainted a Boeing 757 in honour of this. Representing the Aurora, the plane is certainly very striking.
As well as giving people a chance to see the real Northern Lights, enjoy a relaxing visit to Iceland’s famous hot springs, or to do numerous Summer activities that Iceland offers such as trekking, this route also opens up a new path to North America. Reykjavik serves as a great hub to get to the US and Canada, and so this direct route from Birmingham may open up many new destinations!
