A Few Facts About Reykjavik International Airport

The present airport was built by the United States when they and the British occupied the country during WW2. During the war it was used only for military purpose.

In the 1950s it was used for civilian flights – mainly as a refuelling point for cross Atlantic flights. By this time it was completely enclosed ny the US Army base and passengers had to undergo military checks when entering or leaving. This situation continued until 1987 when a new civilian terminal was built outside the main base.

In September 2006 the Americans left Iceland and handed over the ownership of the Airport to the Iceland Government. Since then the terminal has been refurbished and expanded to twice its original size. The airport has seen an increase in passenger traffic of over 7% in the last year.
