Isavia ohf. is the national airport and air navigation service provider of Iceland. The company operates all public airports and air navigation services in a vast area in the north-eastern Atlantic. The company headquarters is at Reykjavík Airport in Reykjavík.[2]


The enterprise was founded in 1945 as the Icelandic Civil Aviation Administration (Flugmálastjórn Íslands). With the creation of the government enterprise Flugstodir ltd. in 2006, the operational services were separated from the regulatory authority of the Icelandic Civil Aviation Administration. 31 January 2010 Flugstodir and Keflavik International Airport Ltd. were merged into a private limited company with 100 per cent state ownership, Isavia ltd.[3]


Isavia operates all public airports in Iceland. A total of 2,165,423 international passengers and 781,357 domestic passengers passed through these airports in 2011.[4]
