26DEC20 / 1900Z - Christmas in Iceland! @ BIKF

Legend has it I return with another flyout event with the one and only @ZinZowe. Christmas is arriving into Iceland! So get ready for a mass flyout! Reykjavik is the capital and most populated city in Iceland. Their airport (Keflavik Airport) is the main airport and largest airport in Iceland serving up to 9.8 Million passengers in 2018! The one major airline serving Keflavik Airport is Icelandair. Both have many tourist admired destinations to countries like Spain, The U.S, Germany, and many more!

Reykjavik is also known for taking multiple 757’s from numerous airlines like American, Delta, and Icelandair. The 20.3 update has recently been released making this airport a great destination for your 757-200! The airport was opened in 1942 incomplete for WWII and named “Meeks Field” after a young pilot who died on Reykjavik Airport.

Keflavik Airport is also known for being an emergency stop for aircraft operating under ETOPS. It’s runways are large enough to support a NASA Challenger landing. The Concorde also flew to Keflavik airport from London Heathrow in June of 1999. The current plans for BIKF is to add 7 more gates and a third runway by 2028!
