Find the cheapest flight to Iceland
There are several airports throughout Iceland, but the country’s main international gateway is Keflavik International Airport (airport code KEF) located roughly 31 miles outside the capital city of Reykjavik. Keflavik airport is, in fact, only used as an international airport – except for some summertime domestic flights to and from Keflavik, all other domestic flights in the area fly in and out of the smaller Reykjavik Airport. Icelandair and Iceland Express both use Keflavik International Airport as their main hub.

Reykjavik Airport (airport code RKV) is actually only a few minutes’ walk from the capital city center, but serves primarily domestic destinations. This airport is the main hub for Air Iceland and Eagle Air, and is also served by Atlantic Airways.
More Information About Iceland
Iceland is an island country in the north Atlantic, and the country’s name is a bit of a misnomer. Rather than being covered in ice, most of it is actually quite green. Perhaps Greenland and Iceland were switched at birth. Most visitors stick to the capital city of Reykjavik, which is a lovely city – and should you want to explore a little more of the rugged rural areas in Iceland, there are short domestic flights which will take you out to explore the volcanoes, fjords and glaciers, either with a guided tour or on your own.
