Our 2019 Partners and Sponsors
Isavia handles the operation and development of a number of airports in Iceland including Reykjavík, Akureyri, Isafjordur, Husavik, Grimsey, Torshavn and main hub Keflavík including its Leifur Eiriksson Terminal.
As the gateway to Iceland, Keflavík Airport’s traffic has grown by 80% in the past three years. Responding to the hike in pax demand, Iceland’s state-owned airport operator plans to almost triple the size of its terminal in the coming years, including a 5,000sq m phase one extension of the main commercial hall, set to open in 2021/2022.
In total, Isavia will be tendering around 9,000 commercial sqm in 2019 in the whole terminal.
“We are extremely excited about hosting the 2019 ACI Europe Commercial & Retail event in Reykjavík Iceland. Our goal is to deliver very high-quality speakers and learnings as well as providing participants the opportunity to get a sneak peak of the best Iceland has to offer. We feel that the industry is very excited about visiting Iceland.”
