Practical Information

Dear EELA 2024 delegates,

Below, you will discover helpful information regarding your participation in the Annual Conference of the European Employment Lawyers Association, to be held in Reykjavík, Iceland on 6 – 8 June 2024. Please read the following points carefully.

Eruption information

There has been an ongoing eruption near the town of Grindavík. We would like to reassure you that the eruption has had no impact on air traffic to and from the country and it is not expected that will happen. Also, it has no effect on travelling between the Keflavík airport and Reykjavík as the eruption is in far distance from the roads between Keflavík International Airport and Reykjavík.
