Two factors have the greatest impact on the scope of Isavia’s operations: the number of flight movements and the number of passengers. Isavia’s income from Keflavík Airport can be attributed first and foremost to the airlines that land at the airport, rent income from catering and retail outlets as well as other income from renting facilities.
As a whole, the company’s operations have widened in scope as compared to last year. Domestic flight passenger throughput decreased by around 4.5%, while the number of international passengers travelling through domestic airports increased by 8%. At Keflavík Airport, the number of passengers increased by 12%; and traffic in Icelandic airspace increased by 5.8% in 2018.
Three aircraft operators ran scheduled flights within Iceland, i.e. Air Iceland Connect, Flugfélagið Ernir and Norlandair. Other aircraft operators who regularly used Isavia services were Mýflug, Circle Air, Atlantsflug and Norðurflug. Vesturflug / Blue West and Helo operate a helicopter service at the company’s airports.
