Strike: Passport Control Delays

Passengers traveling to the UK, US and Canada should plan for extra time at Keflavík Airport during the SFR strike, which began at midnight, RÚV reports. The reason is that passport control agents are on strike, since they’re members of SFR Union of Public Servants. Police officers will be handling passport control in their place during the strike, but fewer gates will be open than usual and long lines are likely.

Passengers traveling to countries within the Schengen Area should not experience any delays, since they don’t go through passport control.
