For North Atlantic transiting aircraft Reykjavik (BIRK/RVK) is a marvellous stop; especially for those who have the opportunity to overnight.

If Iceland’s reputation as one of Europe’s most exciting and exotic countries weren’t enough, the airport is located quite literally in the capital city’s vibrant downtown which gives convenient access to hotels, resturants, pubs and major events.

BIRK Flight Services, adjacent to runways 06-24 and 01-19, is located some fifty paces from the four-star Hotel Loftleidir, a favorite for pilots.

The proximity to Hotel Loftleidir allows guests to keep an eye on their aircraft, even from the window of their hotel rooms! (for the best rates; book through us).
