Cheap flights to Keflavik (KEF)

See all USA departure airports for flights to Keflavik

As Iceland’s largest airport, dealing solely with international flights, it’s not surprising that Keflavik International Airport is the gateway for most international travel in Iceland.

There is only one terminal building, the Leifur Eiriksson Air Terminal, named after the famed Icelandic explorer who is said to have been the first European to land in America, 500 years before Columbus.

Flights to Keflavik International arrive daily from major European and American hubs, although most airlines operate flights on a seasonal basis. At the airport there’s plenty to keep you busy, from shopping in one of the duty-free stores to lounging in the business lounge. You can even appreciate some of Iceland’s finer artwork, which is displayed in the terminal building.

As it’s a small airport, there won’t be much waiting in queues, and there are friendly and welcoming Icelandair staff ready to assist should you need it.
