Reykjavik flight FAQs

A flight from London to Reykjavik takes approximately three hours and 15 minutes.

Our low fare finder is the easiest way to search for savings, but autumn and spring are usually cheaper times of year to visit. Iceland has long been considered a winter destination, but in recent years, summer trips have become popular with tourists looking to experience the midnight sun.

With a clear budget, you can organise a really exciting trip to Reykjavik. Savings can often be made by booking in advance, and renting your own car will save on the cost of expensive coach trips. Swap a few of your meals at restaurants for supermarket alternatives and, if you’re visiting in the summer, it’s possible to camp in a designated campsite rather than staying in a hotel.

When you arrive at Keflavík Airport you can take a Flybus to the city centre. Visitors are able to book tickets for this in advance, and it’s one of the most affordable ways to reach Reykjavik. The coaches stop at lots of major spots in the city, so it’s worth checking to see if yours is on the list. You can also take a local bus or taxi. It’s really easy to get around Iceland with a car, so hire one with British Airways and you can pick it up from the airport when you arrive. You’ll enjoy great benefits, round-the-clock customer support, with all mandatory charges included, and you’ll collect Avios points on every rental.

There’s nowhere else quite like Reykjavik. You can visit active volcanoes, paddle in the Blue Lagoon’s warm waters and party into the early hours all on the same day. Seafood lovers are spoilt for choice in the restaurants, while Iceland’s own twist on the humble hot dog has fans from as far away as Hollywood. In the summer, the days are endless thanks to the midnight sun – so you can travel the famous Golden Circle route to visit some of Iceland’s most impressive sights whenever you feel like it.

You can book a hand baggage-only ticket or make the most of our generous baggage allowance. If you choose economy standard or one of our British Airways Holidays’ packages, each passenger can check in a bag weighing up to 23kg – in addition to a handbag, laptop case or other small bag.

If you hold a passport from a country or territory outside of these areas, you may need to apply for a visa before you travel. You can find out more about visa requirements for all the countries we fly to at the IATA Travel Centre.

Discover outstanding service from the moment you book. Fly with just hand baggage and you can carry two bags in the cabin free of charge. Choose our checked baggage option and you can travel with hand baggage and a 23kg bag checked into the hold, plus enjoy free seat selection 24 hours before you fly.
