Domestic flights within Iceland

All of Iceland's now on the map – and within the world's reach!

From March 2021, Icelandair offers easy domestic flights within Iceland. Smooth flight connections now link all parts of the country with Reykjavík, and with Icelandair destinations in Europe, North America and Greenland. All this can be done in one journey, with one ticket.

We love our capital and we think you will too. But if you're coming to Iceland (or coming back for a repeat visit), why not explore the far-flung corners? Traveling within Iceland just got a lot easier. Combine your innate curiosity for big adventures with our North Atlantic expertise and our new, expanded route network for the adventure of a lifetime.

Icelandair domestic destinations

From the domestic airport close to downtown Reykjavík, we fly to the following airports in Iceland. Flight times are under 1 hour.

Akureyri (North Iceland) Iceland's second city is home to 18,000, and sits at the end of the country's longest fjord. 

Egilsstaðir (East Iceland) The beautiful east has quiet fjords, forests, lakes and mountains to explore.

Ísafjörður (Westfjords) The Westfjords are truly off the beaten track, with magnificent wild landscapes.

Vestmannaeyjar (South Iceland) Also known as the Westman Islands, this spectacular archipelago is just 20 minutes flight from Reykjavík. 

Which airport?

Icelandair passengers from Europe and North America land at Keflavík International Airport (KEF).

To fly domestically within Iceland, passengers must transfer from Keflavík to Reykjavík Domestic Airport (RKV) – a distance of 50km (31 miles).

Remember to pick up your baggage at Keflavík airport and take it with you as you transfer to Reykjavík airport.

Transfer options include bus and taxi. Allow around 90 minutes for bus transfer, and about 60 minutes by taxi or private car.

The same also applies for returning flights. Collect your baggage at Reykjavík airport before transferring to Keflavík for your flight home, and allow enough time to travel between the 2 airports.

Icelandair domestic flights

Our domestic flights are operated on Bombardier aircraft, and due to their smaller size, the service on board is limited compared to that on board the larger Boeing aircraft that connect Iceland with Europe and North America.
