New LED lights have been installed in Keflavík Internationa Airport, according to news website Nútíminn. The lights cost 190 million (1,346,849 Euros/1,504,950 USD) to install and will be able to imitate the amazing Aurora Borealis.

The lights were installed inside the airport’s brand new shopping centre and offer different mood settings, be it a splash of colour during Christmas, or imitating the magnificent Northern Lights in winter.

“On a regular day the lighting will be quite normal but on holidays and other special days we can change it to resemble the mood,” Guðni Sigurðsson, Isavia’s spokesperson, explained. Adding: “For example, should Iceland become European champions in football we could set the lighting in the Icelandic flag colours.”
