Unusually long lines have formed at Keflavík International Airport today, Vísir reports.

Lines are stated to stretch throughout the airport, from the security gates through much of the terminal.

Guðjón Helgason, communications officer for Isavia, stated to Vísir that the disruption should not be attributed to any kind of breakdown or other accident. Guðjón states that it is temporary understaffing due to illness, but replacement staff have now been found. Efforts are being made to catch up on the delays, and the situation should return to normal soon, he stated.

Isavia manages operation at Keflavík International Airport, in addition to other domestic airports throughout Iceland. Travellers can see updates to flight information and conditions here.
