Seismic-activity around the Reykjanes Peninsula

We understand that the situation is causing uncertainty and that you might have concerns about a trip to Iceland due to the increasing likelihood of a volcanic eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula. Please note that the Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management has now transitioned from a Phase of Emergency to an Alert Phase. Reykjavik is still at a safe distance from this area. Iceland is no stranger to volcanic activity. Similar to the previous eruptions on Reykjanes Peninsula, in case of a new volcanic eruption, it should have a minimal impact on the air traffic.
