Reykjavik’s Airport Stays in Vatnsmýri, According to Polls

According to a recent opinion poll, 58.5 percent of Reykjavík inhabitants want the domestic airport to stay in the Vatnsmýri area, Fréttabladid reports.

Recently there have been major discussions about the current location of Reykjavík’s domestic airport, which is located in Vatnsmýri, central Reykjavík. Vatsmýri is a valuable location and as such there has been much debate over whether it should be put to some other purpose.

The majority of those who want the airport to be relocated suggest Keflavík, where the international airport is situated.

Relocation of the airport has been one of the major issues of the members of the Independence Party, which is the largest political party in Reykjavik’s city council.
