Travel by air
There are now many choices
available for travelling by air to Iceland. During the summer months
of 2006, three different airlines will offer regularly scheduled
flights from multiple cities in Europe and America. We highly
recommend making reservations as early as possible,
since Reykjavik is a very popular tourist destination
during the summer months and the less expensive tickets are booked
up fairly quickly.
A FLYBUS operates all day between
Keflavik Airport and Reykjavik in connection with all incoming and
outgoing international flights. The Flybus brings passengers to the
terminal at the
Central Bus Station in Reykjavik (BSI)
near the center of town. From there passengers are taken to most of
the major hotels and guesthouses in Reykjavik. Kindly note that not
all hotels and guesthouses are provided with shuttle service from
the Central Bus station, but taxis are also available outside the
Passengers who want to be dropped off
in either Hafnarfjordur or Gardabær must advise the Flybus driver.
Stops will then be made at the Hotel Viking in Hafnarfjordur and at
the Bitabær shop in Gardabær.
For departure a free pick-up
service is available from most of the major hotels and guesthouses
in Reykjavik. The day before departure, passengers need to inform
the reception desk staff of their hotel/guesthouse that they want
the Flybus to pick them up the following day. The Flybus has a
special schedule based on departures from the BSI terminal, picking
up passengers approximately 1/2 an hour prior at the hotels.
ISK 1300 pr. person one way.
Children 12-15 yrs. pay half price.

one way, regardless of the number of passengers.
