Arriving at Keflavik Airport

Keflavik International airport is often referred as Reykjavik or Reykjavik Airport when shown on information screens around the world. This is however rather inaccurate information. Keflavik airport is not in Reykjavik and to make matter worse there is another airport in Iceland called Reykjavik Airport, which serves only domestic flights and flights from Iceland to Greenland the Fareo Islands.

So, when you arrive to Iceland you are in the city of Keflavik, at Reykjanes Peninsula. That’s about 35 km (21 mi) from Reykjavik. You are actually much closer to the Blue Lagoon and Fagradalsfjall volcano than you are to Reykjavik.
