Well run and spacious airport

We landed here from Newark NY USA (KEWR) on United AL. Customs was friendly and easy. Take the rental car bus from terminal to the rental car lots. Don't walk or follow signs. Get off at one of five stops, depending on your reservation. Be ready for a long list of expensive car insurance choices.

Not operational

It's still there with lots of construction equipment on the west end. Apparently it's not operational since 2011. No aircraft seeable.

Daily connections with Reykjavik

If you have to do in the region very convenient. Beware that flights (Eagle airlines) take off at a separate terminal at Reykjavik domestic airport

re: Spectacular approach!

Reply to @philippe: You havn't seen Isafjordur wich is a scheduled airport and the runway heading is straight in to a mountain and a narrow approach to, more spectacular!

Spectacular approach!

The approach is an offset localizer with curved approach lights, down into a fjord. Interesting missed approach and departure procedure too. The scenery is unbelievably beautiful. Efficient service from the airport staff, reasonable Avgas price for Europe.

Right downtown!

This airport is much more convenient than BIKF for GA. It's right in the middle of town. If you stay at the Loftleidir hotel, 10 meters from the FBO, you can see your aircraft from your window, although we stayed at the Hotel Holt in the center, which is very nice.

Handling and fuel is expensive, but not unreasonable.
