Reykjavik is served by two main airports: Keflavik International Airport (KEF) and Reykjavik Airport (RKV). RKV is Iceland’s main domestic airport located in Reykjavik, which is the main hub for Air Iceland and Eagle Air, whereas KEF is Iceland’s main hub for international flights. The airport’s main carriers are Icelandair and WOW air. The airport has only one passenger terminal, the Leifur Eiriksson Air Terminal, where you will pass through when you land in Reykjavik.
It is recommended that you arrive at the airport three hours prior to your flight’s scheduled departure time to allow yourself an extra time to check in, drop baggage, and go through security screening. To save more time, you can check in online from home as early as 24 hours before the take-off.
