Welcoming 2021 at BIKF!

Or if you really want, you can call it the…
“2020-kind-of-sucked-so-lets-welcome-in-2021 Fly-Out”

BIKF, Keflavik Airport is home to Icelandair which operates 16 Boeing 757-200 aircraft, 2 Boeing 757-300s, 4 Boeing 767-300ERs, and 5 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft (4 Max 8s and 1 Max 9). The Boeing 757 is Icelandair’s primary aircraft and is the only Icelandair livery in Infinite Flight. Given how far north Keflavic is and the kind of climate it’s in, I believe it to be very fitting for the holiday season and a great airport for those who like to travel down south for the winter (You know who you are ;) ). I invite you to bring along your Icelandair 757 or another aircraft to fly a realistic route or sign up with any aircraft which will fit at the airport. Some gates are assigned to IRL routes and others are assigned to custom routes.

More Information on Keflavik Airport, BIKF

Originally built as a military base during World War II to replace an airfield north of its location, the Keflavik Airport serves Greater Reykjavik in Iceland. In the 1950s, the US military returned to the airport. Passengers heading to their departing flights at the airport had to pass through multiple military checkpoints. In the 1960s and 70s, people in Iceland were against the military presence and every year would walk 50km along the highway from Reykjavic to Keflavik. Later, one of the protesters would become the first female president of Iceland. The passenger terminal was later relocated in 1987 so that passengers didn’t have to go through these military checkpoints.

The airport now also serves as an airport for aircraft on transatlantic flights can land in case of an emergency. It was also a hub for WOW air until last year, 2019.

Pushback will be at 2021-01-02T20:00:00Z

To Signup, leave the gate you’d like to take and if it’s a custom flight (one that isn’t flown IRL), please include your destination name and ICAO as well as your aircraft type!

I hope to see you far north in Iceland! I ask that everyone maintain a level of professionalism during the flyout. A group PM will be created closer to the date when we know who’s coming!

Have yourself a very Merry Christmas and importantly, have a great New Year!

Here’s to hoping 2021 is a much better year!
