Serving as a hub to Northern Iceland, Akureyri Airport (AEY) is the country’s second largest airport. Despite its smaller size compared to Keflavik International Airport, Akureyri maintains regular domestic flights and limited international flights. This makes it a perfect landing spot for those wanting to uncover the magic of the country away from overly-trodden tourist paths.

Car Rental at Akureyri Airport

Akureyri Airport provides a range of car rental services right at the airport's exit. Well-known brands such as Hertz, Europcar, and Budget are available. Renting a car at AEY is the ideal way to begin your exciting exploration of Northern Iceland.

Recommended Car Classes

Given the often-rugged terrain of Iceland, 4x4 vehicles are highly recommended, especially during the winter months. However, for leisurely drives around town, a standard or economy car will suffice.

Fueling Up

There are several gas stations within a 10-minute drive from the airport. N1 and Olís are the most popular brands. They provide self-service and operate 24/7. Just remember that Iceland uses the Icelandic króna (ISK) as its currency.
