Why Choose Flybus for Your Airport Transfer?
When you arrive in a foreign country for your holiday, the last thing you want when you touch down is an airport transfer that’s confusing, inconvenient, or costly. That’s exactly why Flybus Iceland exists, to make your arrival as smooth as possible.
The Flybus runs between Keflavík airport and Reykjavík city centre 15 times a day. The journey takes about 45 minutes from the airport to where it terminates at the BSÍ bus station downtown. It’s a quick and reliable service, to make your journey completely stress-free.
Of course, when you’re ready to leave Iceland, the Flybus can take you back to Keflavík too. If you’d like, there’s also the opportunity for pick up from your hotel.
While many visitors will be tempted to take a taxi between Keflavík airport and Reykjavík, it doesn’t make a lot of sense. The Flybus follows the same roads (and the same speed limits!) and taxis only save you a couple of minutes on each journey—but cost you a lot more.
What’s more, there’s no need to worry about missing your airport transfer if your flight to Keflavík is late. The Flybus runs in connection with all airport arrivals—so if you’re late, the bus will wait.
There are also many combination offers available to make your arrival in Iceland extra special. For example, you can book the Flybus and Blue Lagoon together, so you’re whisked straight from the airport to a luxury spa experience. Or combine the Flybus with a Golden Circle tour, or with a Northern Lights experience.
Whatever you choose, Flybus booking is easy. You can do it all online and take any bus on the Flybus schedule cashfree.
