Arrival in Iceland
Keflavík International Airport
The Leifur Eiríksson International Air Terminal in Keflavík (48 km from Reykjavik) is the gateway for most passenger flights and air-freight flights to and from Iceland. The airport is open 24 hours per day. All retail sale and services operated in the departure hall are located within the duty-free zone and are, therefore, duty- and tax-free.
Facilities within the terminal fulfill the most demanding standards and the interior has been designed first and foremost with the traveller in mind. The tasteful, furnishing and decor, with bright interior provide travellers with a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
You can find good selection of brands in shops at the Leifur Eiríksson Air Terminal. The goods and services available at the Duty-Free Stores are very competitive, compared to other European airports. Making your way through the terminal, even on the busiest of days, is a breeze. Arriving passengers should stroll straight downstairs to the arrival hall where, unlike most international airports, tax- and duty-free goods are available upon arrival.
A bus service is operated between Reykjavík and Keflavík International Airport. Buses leave Reykjavík from the BSÍ bus terminal 2.5 hours before flight departure. The drive from the airport to Reykjavík takes about 40-50 minutes.
