Newly Designed Commercial Area at Keflavik International Airport
Iceland’s primary gateway for international traffic gets an inspiring redesign.
Keflavik International Airport is Iceland’s primary gateway for a majority of the international traffic to the country’s capital city of Reykjavik. The airport is one of the fastest growing in Europe and has seen 16–20% annual expansion since 2010. Due to large growth and changes in passenger mix, the airport's operator, Isavia, decided to redevelop the departure hall at the airport.
This exciting new development seeks to make Keflavik International Airport a state-of-the-art environment – rigorously designed, with a surprising and delightful sense of magic woven throughout. The more time travelers spend exploring the airport's thoughtful details, the more the space in the departure lounge will reward them, much like Iceland itself. The careful selection and integration of locally sourced materials will create a highly dynamic and aesthetically pleasing atmosphere, all the while supporting the local Icelandic economy. The newly designed space will pay homage to the unique spirit of the Icelandic people and the quirks of Icelandic culture. The project is set to be completed by May 2015.

In addition to these 10 other great features, Keflavik is one of the few airports in the world where all retail and food and beverage outlets are duty free.
