Bakad opens at Keflavik Airport

A new café called Bakad has opened at Keflavik Airport. The café is located in the airport arrival and departure hall on the 1st floor and accessible to all passengers traveling through the airport. 

The new café will offer a selection of delicious pastries, freshly baked bread and pizzas, healthy fresh juices, salads and steaming hot quality coffee from Te & Kaffi. Product selection and opening hours will be limited to begin with.

"We are focusing on good simple dishes, fresh bread and pizzas, and look forward to offering our baked goods to guests at the airport and sending them happy and full to their flights." says Ágúst Einþórsson, baker and concept designer for Bakað‘s product range. "In addition to offering quick quality service, we have put a lot of ambition into the café´s design for those guests wishing to sit down and enjoy their meal."

Haf Studio was in charge of developing the interiors of both cafes, but the studio has in recent years led the design of many restaurants and food halls in Iceland.

"Designing an inviting and pleasant area for guests at Keflavik Airport was a fun challenge. To achieve a simple and stylish overall look we chose to use natural oak in combination with warm leather in the seating area with ambient lighting. Our goal was to create an environment where guests feel comfortable and can have an enjoyable time before a flight," says Hafsteinn Júlíusson, owner of HAF Studio.

This first Bakad café has now opened in the airport's arrival and departure hall, with the second opening later this year on the second floor of the terminal's main building.

"As the number of passengers continues to grow the need for diverse services increases as well, and Bakað is a great addition to the airport‘s restaurant-flora. We are always working to improve the passenger experience and services offered, and Bakað is a great new option for our passengers," says Gunnhildur Erla Vilbergsdóttir, Commerical Manager at Keflavik Airport.
