Iceland proves a hot ticket for Humberside holiday-makers as further flight added
By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 30 Aug 2017
ICELAND’S unique attractions have proved a hit with tourists, as an exclusive flight from Humberside Airport to the country’s second city sold out, prompting an additional date.
Holiday operator Super Break has added another trip to the northern base of Akureyri, based on the “incredible response” that saw January’s inaugural trip sell out in a month.
The second flight will now depart on February 16.
Humberside is one of the first airports in the country to fly direct to the city, with tourism building on strong sea links fostered in fish.
Deborah Zost, Managing Director of Humberside Airport, said: “We are delighted Super Break has added a second charter package to Iceland from Humberside Airport.
“This exciting destination has proved to be so popular the first trip is now full and we warmly welcome the opportunity for additional local passengers to experience this stunning country in February.
“The three-night Incredible Iceland package will depart on February 16, flying direct to Akureyri in North Iceland, the ideal area for seeing the spectacular Northern Lights.”
Each of the Super Break trips include a tour to see the Northern Lights, a Lake Myvatn Adventure – Land of Fire and Ice Tour, which includes the chance to see the region’s many magical terrains, the Goddafoss Waterfall, the boiling mud pools of Namafjall and a stop at Vogafjos working farm.
Katherine Scott from York-based Super Break said: “We have been thrilled with the popularity of our Incredible Iceland package. Only three seats remain on the first trip we launched from Humberside Airport, so we wanted to add an extra date to satisfy demand in the area.
“At Super Break we take pride in selecting the very best travel experiences for UK holidaymakers to enjoy during a short break and pulled out all the stops to deliver our customers with the first ever flights to Iceland’s Arctic North. From lava walks to some of the best chances of seeing the Northern Lights, adventure really does await those heading to Akureyri.”
