Directions to Reykjavík Domestic and International Airport
Not to be confused with Keflavík International Airport(KEF), which is a 40-minute drive from Reykjavík, the Reykjavík airport is actually within Reykjavík, a 5 minute drive from the city centre and just a stone's throw away from the BSI bus terminal.
The airport is a hub of activity for basically all domestic flights in the area - departing daily to Akureyri, Ísafjörður, the Westman Islands and many more, this is the gateway to the rest of Iceland. Reykjavík airport also has international flights with smaller planes, for instance to Greenland and the Faroe Islands.
Most international flights go through Keflavik, so if you're wondering, unless you're flying domestically, or to/from Greenland or the Faroe Islands, you probably want to check your flight details twice.
The airport is also where a lot of charter planes and Helicopter tours take off from. If you're taking a scheduled flight, you should go to the 'main terminal,' on the west side of the airport, but if you're taking a helicopter tour, you should come to the eastern side, behind Icelandair Reykjavik Hotel Natura.
Getting there: It's easy enough to get there, either grab a cab, walk, run or cycle from the city centre, or you can grab a bus, for instance from Hlemmur bus station.
