Relaxation and excitement at Keflavik International Airport

images1Keflavik International Airport is Iceland’s main airport and provides a vital transport link for both passengers and freight. Recent upgrades mean services are better than ever with travellers’ tax refund vouchers now valid for shopping. Natural splendour, culture, exotic activities and great food is the preferred choice of modern international travellers. Iceland offers all this plus shopping at really low prices with a fabulous exchange rate this season.

Keflavik International Airport is simultaneously a relaxing and exciting environment: travellers can sit down and enjoy the airport’s comfortable ambiance or they can seize the day by taking advantage of all the great shops. Many big brands are available to travellers. Brands like Burberry, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Bvulgari, Boss, Diesel, Breidling, Tagheur and Raymond Weil are cheaper duty free at Keflavik than in many other airports and big cities; and up to 50 percent cheaper than Reykjavik.

Iceland is one of the few countries in Western Europe that can sell tax and duty-free goods and services to both arriving and departing passengers. This allows arriving visitors to stock up on tobacco, liquor, cosmetics, electronic goods and other gift items. The airport is not only about airport shopping though. Surrounded by Icelandic art, travellers can enjoy their coffee, meal and drinks in a quiet and relaxing airport.

Keflavik International Airport is an important mid-Atlantic hub airport with excellent facilities geared up to serve the busy transatlantic and polar routes – as well as cargo and passenger services to and from Iceland itself. The airport is consistently ranked among the best in Europe by ACI surveys. The ACI (Airports Council International) surveys passenger views on over 30 aspects of airport service and Keflavik is currently ranked Europe’s best in several crucial fields, and second overall. Keflavik International Airport is the most convenient for quick flight connections in Europe; it is Europe’s cleanest and also rated as the continent’s most comfortable airport environment.

Iceland is located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and is kind of a bridge between the east and the west. It is really easy to travel from Iceland to the USA or Europe and from there to Asia. Iceland is only 5 hours from the east coast of USA and 3 hours from the middle of Europe. One of KEF’s strengths is the ease of making flight connections; travellers are really satisfied and happy when it comes to changing flights at the airport because it takes only few minutes to exit an aeroplane and enter another. KEF is a refreshingly non-congested airport.
