Currently, Icelandair is the only operator running direct flights from Birmingham to Reykjavik. It takes just two hours and 45 minutes to touch down at Keflavik International Airport (KEF), Iceland’s main airport. Book as far in advance of travel as possible to get the cheapest flight tickets.
Keflavik International Airport (KEF) is located around 50 kilometres from Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital city. It’s true what they say about prices being high in Iceland, and airport transfers offer no exception.
Airport shuttle services cost 2,100-2,800 Icelandic krona (£13-18). The higher priced tickets include a door-to-door service (handy, when the winter chill bites or if your hotel isn’t in the compact central area of Reykjavik).
Taxi fares between the airport and central Reykjavik are in the region of 13,000-18,000 krona (£80-100).
Car hire in Iceland is a good-value option: you can you save on the cost of airport transfers and have the freedom to explore this mystical and beautiful land minus the guides and schedules.

With friendly big-village vibes and one of the hippest nightlife scenes in Europe, you might feel as if you’ve just rolled off the slopes in some chic mountain retreat as you mingle among pink-cheeked tourists and wool-clad locals in buzzing Reykjavik.
The shops, bars and eclectic mix of restaurants in Reykjavik join forces with a handful of attractions to make this an ideal weekend-break destination. Visit the Hallgrimskirkja cathedral (you can’t miss this hilltop landmark), take a bracing stroll along the waterfront, chomp down on one of the city’s world-famous hot dogs and shop for Icelandic woollen wear at The Perlan.
You’ll need that wool if your visit falls anytime outside of those long, light summer days. Flights to Reykjavik are popular year round, with winter visitors baying for the night-time spectacular that is an appearance by the northern lights. Steaming dips in the Blue Lagoon and chilly adventures around the Golden Circle rank highly among top reasons to book a seat on a flight to the land of ice and fire in autumn, winter and spring.
