Keflavík International Airport is Iceland's largest airport and the primary hub for all international flights arriving in or departing from the country. It is located two miles west of the town of Keflavik and 31 miles southwest of Iceland's capital city, Reykjavík. The airport encompasses nearly ten square miles in area and includes two runways and a terminal building.
Keflavik International Airport is home to two major air carriers: Icelandair and Iceland Express. All routes are international, with domestic flights handled out of Reykjavík Airport. There are regularly scheduled flights in and out of Keflavik Airport to 30 European cities, three Canadian cities and eight airports in the U.S.
Keflavic Airport was constructed by U.S. military forces between May 1942 and May 1943. It was originally built as two separate airfields: Meeks Field, which had four long runways to accommodate heavy bombers and long-range transport aircraft and Patterson Field, which was home to the 33rd and 50th Fighter Squadrons.
The airport, which was used strictly for military operations until the end of WWII, also held a U.S. Navy base, United States Naval Air Station Keflavik, which remained in operation until 2006. During the war the Naval Air Station was the command center for all allied military operations in Iceland and was also tasked with the responsibility of providing all necessary support for military personnel assigned to duty in Keflavic.
At war's end, U.S. forces were withdrawn and both bases were turned over to the Icelandic government. It was officially named Keflavic Airport at that time. Joint operations, however, between Iceland and the United States, continued on until 2006.
The airport is currently owned and operated by Isavia, which is a government-owned entity. Both runways, which are surfaced in asplalt, are in excess of 10,000 feet in length.
