One stop made on the way to and from the city centre

Airport Direct aims to give the best possible service to their customers. Included in the standard price is pick up and drop off at Reykjavik Terminal at Skogarhlid 10, 105 Reykjavik and Hamraborg in Kopavogur. Besides that one stop, we drive straight, and on schedule to Reykjavik Terminal.

SmartBus

The Hotel Connection for Airport Direct Economy is operated by SmartBus. SmartBus is a pick up and drop off service for Airport Direct, Destination Blue Lagoon and Reykjavik Sightseeing, operated on bright green buses. Instead of having multiple operators picking up passengers on different shuttles, we only use one per departure time, meaning a eco-friendlier pick up that minimises traffic in the city centre. SmartBus transfers you to Reykjavík main bus stop where you will find your bus waiting for you, ready to take you to your flight. To sum up, look for a bright green Smart Bus if you booked hotel connection.

The Reykjavik City Bus Stops

With a Hotel Connection we pick you up from your hotel, guesthouse, or designated bus stop if you are staying in the restricted area in downtown Reykjavik. The reason behind the restricted area is that Reykjavik City aims to keep the small scaled city centre a pleasant and safe place for everyone with less bus traffic. Hence, the city of Reykjavik offers special pick up and drop off places. The bus stops are located in and around the city centre and are easily accessible. Most hotels in restricted area are within a 5-10 minute walking distance from bus stops. If you prefer a door to door service or are staying outside the downtown area then perhaps Airport Direct Premium or Airport Direct Private is the transfer for you.
