Latest Update from Reykjavik Airport:

29/05/12 - Debate continues over the future of the airport which needs to be decided before 2016. It is currently heading towards over capacity and is in the middle of an ever expanding urban area. It is likely that, finance allowing, the airport will close and be relocated so it can more effectively challenge Iceland's main airport, Keflavik.
