ISAVIA (Icelandic Civil Aviation Administration) predicts 6.7 million passengers will travel through Keflavík International Airport in 2016. Around 4.6 million passengers passed through Keflavík in 2015, an increase of 25.6 % from 2014 and the airport’s highest ever number of annual passengers.

According to the National Broadcasting Service, the number of international passenger traffic was roughly 1.3 million people.

Plans are to add a 3000 square metre (32292 sq ft) building to Keflavík airport to allow for a larger and better baggage handling system.
