Keflavík Airport Area Masterplan


The strategy aims at creating a smart, inclusive mobility network for the Suðurnes region.

Efficient transport systems provide economic and social opportunities and benefits that result in positive multiplier effects within the KAA, such as better accessibility to markets, employment, and additional investment.

The mobility strategy focuses on four key features; high quality transit connection between the Keflavík airport terminal and the capital area; improved local public transport; network of paths for active mobility and comprehensive street network.

Recent sprawl-like development of the built-up area has resulted in a situation where the private car is the dominant mode of transport and public transportation is rather neglected. A network for active mobility is piecemeal, especially between different settlements.

There is a lack of a comprehensive vision for a reliable and frequent public transport system both locally and regionally which work seamlessly together.

The mobility strategy has six main objectives:

Coordinate local and regional public transport

Integrate mobility in urban planning and environment strategies

Provide a high-quality transit service from the airport to Reykjavík

Build sustainable and future proofed mobility to meet Iceland’s CO2 reduction goals

Build mobility that is affordable and accessible for everyone

Devise and implement a cohesive management of car rental provision
