DC-6 DC4.gif (33365 bytes)Akureyri Airport in the estuaries of River Eyjafjardara, constructed in 1955, originally had a gravel runway, which was paved in 1967.  Prior to its construction, the airstrip at Melgerdismelar further to the south in Valley Eyjafjardardalur was used and amphibious planes landed on the head of the Eyjafiord Bay (Pollurinn).  Scheduled flights between Reykjavik and Akureyri began in 1937.  From Akureyri connecting flights to other towns in the Northwest, North and East are offered.  Akureyri Airport is a centre for ambulance flights in the North and East. Taxis are available in front of the terminal building. The price for a four-passenger taxi to the centre of Akureyri is approximately ISK 800 (equivalent to about GBP 6, DDK 75 or EUR 9). Practically all taxis take credit cards. The airport is 3 km from Akureyri centre
