Passenger numbers continue to rise as we pass from spring into summer. 643.800 passengers made their way through Keflavík Airport in May 2023. Multiple airlines, both Icelandic and international, flew to 69 different destinations with Copenhagen, London, New York, Paris og Boston being the most popular.

According to numbers from the Icelandic Tourist Board the departures of foreign passengers from the country via Keflavík Airport were 158,000 in May, or about 98% of what they were in May in the record year 2018.

Around a quarter of the departures in May were due to American nationals, while the departures of Icelanders were about 62 thousand. Other significant nationalities in terms of number of passengers were Poland, France, Germany, and The Netherlands.

Summer has arrived with bright nights and (hopefully) warmer weather. We look forward to seeing you at Keflavík Airport!
