CONTROL TOWERS

Our Air Navigation Division provides air traffic control (ATC) services at Keflavik, Reykjavik and Akureyri Airports. The air traffic controllers at these airports are employees of the Air Navigation Division. Only aerodrome flight information service (AFIS) is provided at other scheduled airports, whose control tower personnel come under the Airports and Infrastructure Division, although the Air Navigation Division is responsible for the service.
