  • US citizens booking flights from the US to Iceland do not require a visa in order to travel. Iceland is part of the Schengen program, therefore US permanent residents from EU countries that are members of the Schengen zone also do not require a visa.
  • Keflavik International Airport (KEF) is the only international gateway to Iceland and is situated at the southwestern tip of the island. This airport is used mainly for international flights so if you wish to fly to other areas of the country, you must use Reykjavik Airport (RKV), which is about 2 mi from Reykjavik City.
  • There are only a handful of airlines that offer nonstop flights to Iceland from the United States and all of them originate from cities on the Eastern seaboard. Icelandair flies direct from JFK in New York and Newark’s EWR while JetBlue flies nonstop from Logan International Airport (BOS) in Boston.
  • Air Iceland is the country’s main domestic carrier and uses Reykjavik Airport as its hub. If you prefer to fly around the country, you can fly Air Iceland to other regional airports such as Raufarhofn Airport (RFN), which services the Northeastern Region of the country, and Isafjordhur Airport (IFJ) if you are traveling to the West Fjords area.
  • Iceland is a nature lover’s paradise and no trip is truly complete without a visit to Snaefellsjokull National Park, which is home to a glacier, volcanic lava fields and various local wildlife. The park is found in the outer reaches of the Western Region, not far from Hellisandur, and once you fly into Keflavik Airport, it will take you about 4h to get there by car.

Cons: "The entertainment system was not good. The touch screen was not calibrated and very hard to select and scroll through. The flight was over a hour late so we missed our connection. Got rebooked okay, but after traveling for 18 hours having to wait three extra hours was a drag."

Pros: "Although we were badly delayed the cabin service was excellent in every way. Good meal , cheerful staff and well turned out."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything incl customer service at the airport"

Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable, not enough minimum space to fit my knees behind seat in front when front passenger reclined. 6 hours is too long to have a metal rod sticking straight into your knee caps. Shoulders were squished between other passengers and had to sit twisted the whole way and Im not a large person, but am 6ft. Cabin crew impolite and unhelpful. Food was awful and made my friend sick."

Pros: "Fast boarding and nice staff. Food selection was ok"
Cons: "One item missing from menu (unavailable). Issues with entertainment system. Bathrooms lacked moisturiser which is always very helpful on long flights where the air is dry"

Pros: "Easy and on time boarding."
Cons: "Seats are extremely small. And when the seat in front reclines they are basically in your lap."

Pros: "Food and service was ok"
Cons: "Delayed at the airport. Very little leg room and hot while waiting to yake off. Entertainment was really bad. Bad screen and sound quality was awful."

Pros: "love the lounge and easy check in and boarding, great attendants and smooth trip"
Cons: "would be nice if lounge was open earlier - arrived for 8:30am flight and had to wait around in freezing cold terminal with no coffee for an hour"

Cons: "It was terribly late. No one had a clue on when flight would depart."

Cons: "They switched my gate 5 times and lost my baggage."

Cons: "Once In London, we were told by British Airways that was flying us to Nice that Delta had “lost” our infant electronic ticket - It took 1.5h to get new ticket reissued! We missed our connection and had to wait 3 more hours for the next flight - We were somewhat lucky as multiple flights were delayed/cancelled that day - I will avoid using Virgin Atlantic in the future as they need Delta and British operate their flights and this makes it prone to issues like that"

Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "Couldn't stretch my right (window side) leg. Display quality was poor."

Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."

Pros: "Quantity of food was less for the dinner time..but overall experience was good.."

Pros: "My flight was delayed boarding, Entertainment wasn't exciting oppose to other Virgin flights I have taken in previous years. Food wasn't great. I had teriyaki chicken with rice and I left it. Big dislike - when I was checking in online I found some economy seats I couldn't allocate for my seating due to additional charge applies. I think this is very off putting as I have been a Virgin member for years and it is very disappointing."
Cons: "I liked the Airbus carrier which had only two seats (window and Isle) on each sides oppose to three. It felt more comfortable."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and did a great job."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight."

Cons: "the crew was very dry. they did not seem too happy."

Pros: "The food was surprisingly ok and the seats in PE were comfortable, plus there were two USB ports, perfect!"
Cons: "Being woken up to be asked if I wanted to eat, twice! If I wanted to eat, I wouldn't have a sleeping mask on my face, or be asleep! Plus, upper class and premium economy didn't board first."

Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"

Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "Mostly everything was fine."
Cons: "Not really anything particularly that I didn't like."

Pros: "We were late arriving at the airport and the checkin desk people were SO nice putting us through. Otherwise we never would have made it on the flight. Also the extra legroom seats were well worth it!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Staff excellent - Inflight screen useful."
Cons: "Could not do online Check in - apparently as there were 4 separate legs on my Ticket."

Pros: "At JFK the lounge and service was the best I have encountered."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "No wifi was absolutely aggravating. Seat space was bad as well - very little leg room."

Pros: "The meals were very small and not very tasty. Economy appears to have lost staff as it takes the entire flight to get a drink and dinner, the feeling you get is that you should just get on board and then sit quietly for 7 hours and not ask for anything. The entertainment does not have a very large selection and if you fly regularly does not seem to update very often."

Pros: "Very racist !!! I'm black . I didn't get service I paid for , The food was mediocre. The beef was not cooked Or just tasted like it wasn't good. I don't think I'm flying virgin Atlantic again . Bad bad experience from all my flights ."

Cons: "Wasn't Virgin Atlantic, it was delta. We thought we were flying Virgin Atlantic. Dissapointment #1 Interactive TV's were horrible and required assistance to work them. Touch screens weren't responsive. Food was bad."

Pros: "Frequent drinks, attentive stewards/stewardesses, good gluten free meal, comfortable seats smooth flight First checked bag is free."
Cons: "Seats were very slim - armrests were pressing on hips when trying to shift my bottom to change position. The 45 minute delay due to fog. No snacks - like nuts, pretzels, etc"

Pros: "Not much to be honest. Which is a shame because I usually love the service from Virgin Atlantic."
Cons: "The TV system needed replacing. The controller was broken and the sound was terrible. Made my flight longer than needed."

Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive at my destination until 2 days after I did. And after I checked my luggage, a leather satchel was stolen from my suitcase. I reported the theft to Virgin Atlantic and requested a report nearly a week ago and have heard nothing back. I am usually careful about packing luggage, and did not think the leather satchel would attract a thief working for the airline, but I will not make that mistake again! DO NOT TRUST VIRGIN TO HANDLE LUGGAGE."

Pros: "It was a lot faster than originally predicted."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system kept glitching and needed to be reset a few times"

Pros: "Very friendly and professional staff. Clean cabin."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats. Dinner not very tasty."

Pros: "That I arrived safely; )"
Cons: "So little space"

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Everything! the best part was that the they kept the middle seat empty!"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "For some reason, we were asked several times for Passports. This didn’t make any sense since we are US citizens with drivers license. They even had TSA talk to us. This has to be fixed. Otherwise, Delta experience was great."

Cons: "Nothing, really. Airlines unfortunately can’t make people patient or polite, & I can’t afford a private jet, so I’ll have to settle for an eye roll or twelve."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No mechanical failures or delays would be nice"

Cons: "Small plan"

Cons: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."

Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"

Pros: "Generally, Delta is cleaner, their terminals are much nicer, and the experience is better than one with American and United. I wish they had more direct flights to my normal destinations--I'd fly with them more!"
Cons: "Someone unloaded a lot of crumbs on my tray table and they all got smooshed on the back of the seat between the tray table and chair. It was pretty nasty. (The tray table was clean, the back of the seat wasn't. Please be nasty.)"

Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off.

Cons: "LOST MY BAG IN BOSTON BEFORE EVEN TAKING OFF!!!! Did not make it, and then won't deliver it when it makes it to Kathmandu! This is most distressing."

Pros: "Everything else"

Pros: "I was thankful for the early boarding with a lap infant and was very pleased with the options for entertainment on the TV monitor."
Cons: "The main issue I had was that we sat in row 34 and the noise from the engines often made it difficult to hear announcements, even with headphones in. Look into possibly zoning the audio and turning it up a click or two for rows behind the engines."

Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."

Cons: "We sat on-board the aircraft, at the gate, for almost 2 hours due to a weather delay. During this time, we were not offered refreshments, nor were we offered any type of "compensatory benefit" for our delay (e.g., free Wi-Fi, vouchers good toward a future flight (a $30 voucher per passenger would seem appropriate), additional SkyMiles (3000-5000 SkyMiles would seem appropriate), etc.)."

Cons: "Jet airways sucks"

Pros: "red"
Cons: "red"

Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."

Cons: "Unfriendly sataff. Not informed that we have to me know in with a difrnt confirmation number related to the operating Claire. I had to spent one hour to fit this information to be able to check in.? It was an international flight but it was treated like a domestic flight. We were not even offered the curtesy snake for a domestic flight by unfriendly stewards apparently unhappyted with her job. Apparanty all American carrier staffs has no respect for customers. It is not only s united problem. Curtesy and respects goes both ways. They need to be retrained in public relation."

Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."

Pros: "Efficient boarding system, clearly signposted. Professional staff"

Cons: "The flight advertised meals..a small pastry was served an hour into the flight.

Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."

Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"

Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."

Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"

Cons: "Service"

Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."

Pros: "Flight was operated by American and they really absolutely need to update their planes on the JFK-CDG route.

Pros: "Head phone jack was not working in my seat."

Cons: "Terrible wait to depart. Altered my pick up plans in Barcelona and made me incur in extra expenses"

Pros: "Good American Arline's crew"
Cons: "Operated by American Airlines. This was a different filght than was in our tickets because we were late for our connection flight. There were no help from Finnair to find a "replacement" flight."

Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Was not Finnair but American Airlines operated flight, so cramped, no personal entertainment system, sub charger, etc. Would have been great if this was 1996 and not 2016."

Cons: "Most of the entertainment consoles did not work"

Cons: "Nothing was dairy free, staff did not even have access to ingredients so I could check myself."

Pros: "Aircraft was so old.Paying $1,000 for that, when any other airline uses decent aircrafts, is just unacceptable."

Cons: "no food on the first flight no private tv they tell you can have wi fi entertainment but you have to pay for it the staff was rude tell also told me my cary on luggage could not be taken on board because there was no more space so i had to cary all my things for two flights but once i came in into the plane there was plenty of space. the seats had a very low head rest"

Pros: "Great flight. Check in had to be done manually but the agents were plentiful and it was quick and easy. Great movie selection on the flight and the chicken and rice tasted great as well. Would recommend this airline."
Cons: "No issues."

Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "Crew was great. Loved having the layflat seat instead of regular Saga seat. It’s a leased plane due to the grounding of the 737-max so we got layflat seats instead of WI-FI (which is way better in my opinion)"
Cons: "O M G! It was about 150F while we were waiting to take off and for some reason, business class doesn’t have overhead vents. I had rivulets of sweat dripping down my face and almost felt woozy. The plane was also a bit worn and dirty compared to the last time I flew Icelandair in 2016."

Pros: "It wasn’t full so we got a row to ourselves people were nice"
Cons: "TXL Airport is super slow with luggage."

Cons: "Seats too close together and uncomfortable, but all economy class seats are the same so far in every airline I have flown."

Cons: "The crew barely came by, the seats were TINY and you have to pay for everything. It was really a bad experience"

Cons: "The seats are narrow whereby you are overlapping shoulders with the next person. Good leg room for short people. Food/beverage service is limited for a transatlantic flight. Outside of coffee, tea, and water, all beverages are at a cost and there is no snack (i.e., pretzels, nuts)."

Cons: "They downsized the plane and bumped me and my travel companion. Worse experience of my life."

Cons: "unexpected luggage charge for an international flight. $100 for each way!"

Pros: "Overall the flight was good. Seat recline was reasonable comfortable and Crew were friendly and professional."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding process in KEF. Everyone is rushed from a comfortable sitting area to stand in line. Then herded to a waiting area without seats to stand around for 20 minutes until a bus shows up to take you to your plane. Pretty poor system."

Cons: "Charge got headphones???"

Cons: "The plane was late leaving Boston and again leaving Iceland. The seats were very uncomfortable on the first leg of the trip, and marginally better in the second leg."

Pros: "The USB plug and screen"
Cons: "No snacks"

Cons: "I didn't like being charged 95 dollars for my checked luggage with no prior knowledge that that was going to be the case. The website said one free checked piece, but apparently that didn't apply."

Pros: "Everything but having to pay $69 for a checked bag was fine."
Cons: "Had to pay $69 to check one bag even though economy class is entitled to one free bag. We specifically brought a checked bag expecting it was free. Otherwise we would have only done carry on."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "No food"

Pros: "boarding was easy and flight was on time"
Cons: "was a fortune to check a bag $95 .I travel a lot and have never paid more than $50 No snacks oferred at all. seats were awful-no room"

Pros: "They provided a pillow and blanket which was very nice, and the crew were helpful in finding space for items during take-off and landing. The boarding and exiting were fairly quick."
Cons: "Everything on board costs extra, including basic drinks and snacks, but that's to be expected on cheaper flights. I assumed that the inflight movies cost money as well, although I didn't watch any because I didn't have headphones."

Pros: "*Water bottle distribution while boarding *Excellent movie/tv selection *Comfortable/roomy seats *Very pleasant staff *Good luggage storage"
Cons: "No dislikes here!"

Cons: "not being on the plane!"

Pros: "When purchasing of ticket it hide that there is not a complimentary first bag check. To find out at the airport check-in that have to pay additional $190 ($95x2) to already paid price, I feel extremely cheated. According to Iceland Air, its the 3rd party/ Kayak's fault for hiding. I told them they are the one who are using 3rd party to sell tickets so the responsibility goes to both sides."

I told them they are the one who are using 3rd party to sell tickets so the responsibility goes to both sides."

Pros: "Still a cattle car in coach"
Cons: "Way too cramped for seating, but the are all the same."

Cons: "Service of staff was sub par compared to other airlines serving Germany"

Cons: "foot rests in Saga class weren't very comfortable"

Pros: "Everything was awesome"

Pros: "I really liked the fun facts about Iceland on seat heads, and the seats were quite comfy as well. Everyone was really friendly. As far as being trapped in a tiny space too high up in the air can be, it was quite enjoyable."

Pros: "Service on the plane was excellent."
Cons: "Long wait to get off of the plane in Reykjavik."

Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "They did not offer any complimentary snacks whatsoever on this international flight. They only gave out free water."

Pros: "On time, polite and helpful assistance at airport with seat assignmnent issue ( all seats on a four leg ticket had been unassigned after assignment three months prior), generous leg room, very good tea on flight. Slept in Reykjavik airport on long layover due to dreadful weather. More comfortable than most airports."
Cons: "All was fine."

Pros: "The price was right. Lots of entertainment options. Amenity kit was nice. Staff/crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Seats were not as comfortable as business class seats on other airlines I have flown."

Pros: "They brilliantly board passengers with window seats first! The seats are roomy and the lighting above the storage bins is a nice touch."

Pros: "On time and no lost luggage. Crew was pleasant."

Cons: "Luggage didn't make it"

Pros: "Movies choices, free checked bag"
Cons: "Lack of complimentary inflight snacks"

Pros: "The bump was easy and smooth. Got me to Paris at roughly the same time."

Pros: "The on demand movies and shows"
Cons: "Paying for headphones"

Pros: "price"

Cons: "No aircon, small seats and no snacks/food served on the flight. Also the entertainment offers were meager for moderately expensive tickets. The fun began in REK. We arrived on time but something at the gate was broken so instead of bringing stairs to the plane they kept us on the plane for an additional 45 min sitting at the gate. During the wait we asked the flight attendants multiple times to make sure our planes would be waiting and were told that Iceland air planes will wait. When we finally got off with stairs, most connecting flights, even from Iceland air, had already left and passengers were stuck in REK. We were then re-routed through Copenhagen after pressuring the gate attendants into making sure we would be arriving in Frankfurt the same day since we could not spend a day in REK as other passengers had to do. We spent an entire day in airports and planes finally making Frankfurt (including time changes) at 830pm, 9 hours later than planned. All in all I won't fly Iceland air again."

Cons: "We waited 4 hours on tarmac before they decided to cancel the plane. It's ok that planes have issues and unforeseen things happen, but the crew didn't do a good job at showing that they can handle unexpected situations well. There was little to no communication throughout the ordeal. The decision to board the plane then tow it to a place to work on repairs with everybody onboard for 4 hours, when we're sitting on all this jet fuel seems poor."

Pros: "Efficiency, attentiveness, and competency of the crew. ALSO: Baggage included in the fare - no surprises."
Cons: "The industry standard of cramming patrons into tight quarters. NOTE: These ratings and comments apply to all four flights between Boston and Stockholm."

Cons: "It was cancelled"

Pros: "The plane boarded very quickly and efficiently in Boston. It seemed like everyone was all seated a good 20 minutes before our scheduled departure time. The staff was friendly and helpful and I really appreciate being handed a bottle of water upon boarding."
Cons: "The food for purchase was so-so and the entertainment system was a bit unresponsive and difficult to get to do what you would like."

Cons: "Broken seat. Couldn't recline. Another seat than that booked online."

Pros: "The crew staff was friendly and immedirabtlt found my a blanket when I requested one"
Cons: "39b is the last row and middle seat. What is there to like ?"

Pros: "On Time, efficient."
Cons: "The stewardesses disappeared and were hard to contact."

Cons: "crying baby"

Pros: "I was mistakenly told the middle seat 25B was an aisle seat which it would have been with 232 plane rather than the 33 seat g on my plane. This confusion should not occur."
Cons: "Lack of any real concern or compassion about the issue about my seat assignment."

Cons: "My luggage is missing"

Pros: "We were upgraded to saga- thank you!!"

Pros: "seats were hard and uncomfortable not enough leg room , seats are to narrow"
Cons: "bottle of water was pleasant surprise"

Pros: "Thank you for providing a group of 20 students with hotels and meals when they missed their connecting flight in Iceland!"

Pros: "good selection of movies/tv. comfortable seat."
Cons: "very few food options and only for purchase."
