Information about Keflavík Airport

Keflavík International Airport is the largest airport in Iceland and the major point of entry for international transportation. Most travelers to Iceland will pass through it unless, of course, they arrive via cruise ship. 

The terminal is named after the first European to arrive in North America, the Iceland-born Leifur Eiriksson. It has duty-free stores in the departure section and in the arrival lounges. 

The largest carrier operating out of Keflavik International Airport is Icelandair. There are, however, around 30 other carriers operating at the airport, connecting Iceland to numerous locations across North America and Europe.

The airport is located on the tip of Reykjanes peninsula in southwest Iceland. The largest settlement is Reykjanesbaer, with 10,000 residents. 

When traveling to and from the airport, you will drive on route 41 which takes you between the airport and Reykjavik. Along the way, you will drive through the townships of Kopavogur, Gardabaer and Hafnarfjordur, and pass Reykjanesbaer town as well as other smaller settlements. 

The route between Reykjavík and the airport is quite unusual. Covering the peninsula is a large field of moss-covered lava as Reykjanes peninsula runs along the Mid-Atlantic Rift, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are drifting apart. This results in a volcanically active environment, with volcanic eruptions taking place in the region in 2021 and 2022.

Besides the vast lava field, you can find geothermal areas on the peninsula with hot springs and bubbling mud pools, although these cannot be seen en route to the airport. 

Frequently asked questions

How do I get from Keflavik airport to Reykjavik?

The most popular option is taking one of the many large coach services that run between the airport and the city, such as Flybus Airport Transfer. These buses will transfer you to the BSI Reykjavik Bus Terminal, which is conveniently located in the city center.

You could also opt for a hotel connection to be added to your ticket. Then you'll take a mini-bus from the bus terminal to a bus stop located close to your accommodation.

Another option is a private shuttle. Although pricier, this is a more luxurious way to travel. You will be picked up at the airport and driven straight to your accommodation.
