Welcome to our newest build, Reykjavik International Airport (RIA)
Located to the north of Reykjavik City, we are the one stop airport for airlines between the US and Europe.
With 20 Medium stands and 7 large stands we cater for a range of aircraft coming as far a field as Asia and the Middle East.
So lets start this tour with an overview
Upon arrival you can either park up, get a local bus service, taxi, or get dropped off. Cars, buses and taxis are separated and can only travel one way to avoid congestion.
You will then head to level 1 for check in
The airport is a mirror image, so left and right are near enough the same.
Security is next and depending on what part of the airport you are heading to will determine what checkpoint you go through.
Right and left will take you to the respective gates and the central ones will take you to the large stands and the rest of the airport
To the left from security you will come to the Maple departure lounge, exclusive for Maple medium aircraft
To the Right we have the Air Strada departure lounge.
And straight on from Security will take you over the Sky Bridge with great views over the airfield and home to Icelands largest Duty free shop
Over the sky bridge will bring you to the large stands and the remaining medium stands
Heading from one of our large stands, we have 3 boarding gates per stand to get you on your way as soon as possible
Big bird line up
Upon arrival you will head down to level 0
If arriving at one of the large stands or on a flight that is not Maple or Air Strada you will head back over the skybridge below the dutyfree shop
And end up back in the central arrival area
and collect your bags from one of the reclaim areas
You baggage will be taken care of from our baggage bays located on the staff only area on -1
Last of all we have our service area for fuel, catering and cleaning
We have tried to be as green as possible and have a number of plants and green areas around the airport.
Surprisingly we don’t have any deicing facilities, unfortunately due to land constraints these had to be omitted. if an aircraft needs deicing our ramp team will head out with a can of deicer and a little scrapper and go to work on the aircraft.
I hope you enjoy our latest airport, we have also acquired some land on the west of the USA so our team are hard at work getting this project started.
