total solar eclipse

easyJet passengers flying to Iceland from the UK on Friday are set to be amongst a select group people anywhere in the world to view one the most spectacular natural phenomenon’s - a total solar eclipse. Only visible from two places on earth, the remote Faroe Islands and Norway’s Svalbard archipelago, the total eclipse occurs when the moon fully covers the sun resulting in a complete blackout.

Flights EZY 2295 and EZY 1805 which will depart from both Luton and Manchester at 07:45 and EZY 6747 from Belfast at 08:05 will pass almost directly over the Faroe Islands at the right time, giving passengers one of the closest and unobstructed views of a total eclipse anywhere in the world.

The rest of the UK will only get to view a partial eclipse and even then, with the Met office predicting cloud across the country on Friday, the chances of seeing anything at all could be remote.

Speaking on the event, Ali Gayward, Commercial Manager for Iceland, said, “We would encourage passengers to bring eclipse viewing specs with them and keep their window blinds open for the safest but most spectacular way to view it.”
