Helicopter tours in South-East Iceland for the first time
– Atlantsflug starts running helicopter tours from Skaftafell Terminal

Atlantsflug has started offering helicopter tours from its headquarters Skaftafell Terminal – Tour Center, becoming the first operator to offer helicopter tours in South-East Iceland. The helicopter operations supplements the company‘s acclaimed fixed wing sightseeing flights it has operated from Skaftafell and Bakki Airport for years.

The luxurious and spacious Airbus AS350 A-Star helicopter offers a wide cabin with no obstructions that ensures optimum visibility for all passengers with forward facing seats. With a seating capacity of up to five passengers, the Squirrel (A-Star) is also ideal for exclusive charters. While travelling in style the helicopter still retains the versatility to land in almost any location.

Atlantsflug is delighted to welcome this as an addition to its services, and the helicopter‘s versatility is perfectly suited for its all-year operations around the Skaftafell National Park and surrounding highlands, one of Iceland‘s most popular tourist areas and home to a vast array of attractions and activities.

The addition also follows Atlantsflug recently being awarded Luxury Travel Guide’s prestigious Lifestyle Award as Tour Operator of the Year in Iceland for 2018/2019. Being able to offer helicopter tours from Skaftafell allows Atlantsflug to further cater to the luxury and lifestyle market and provide a full range of flexible services.

The helicopter will be stationed at Skaftafell Terminal – Tour Center, Atlantsflug‘s new headquarters and tourist center which provides a service area and meeting point for local tour operators. Tröll Expeditions recently joined Skaftafell Terminal – Tour Center as first official partner, and discussions with further potential partners are underway.

Statement by Jón Grétar Sigurðsson, Atlantsflug CEO:

„Getting a helicopter to Skaftafell is a long time goal which has now been achieved. The first step was building our new facility which is now up and running. This is a great and exciting next step for us, and I encourage operators that are interested in taking part in our journey ahead to get in touch.
