Flights to the Westman Islands
This year Icelandair offers flights between Reykjavik Airport (RKV) and the Westman Islands (VEY) during the Þjóðhátíð festival. The flight time is only 20 minutes. From July 28 to July 31 we fly either once or twice a day, but on August 1 there will be five flights between Reykjavík and the Westman Islands.
The Westman Islands – called Vestmannaeyjar, or simply 'Eyjar' in Icelandic — make up a spectacular archipelago off the south coast of Iceland.
Icelandair passengers from Europe and North America land at Keflavík International Airport (KEF). To travel to the Westman Islands by air, passengers need to first transfer from Keflavík to the city airport in Reykjavík – a distance of 50 km (31 miles).
