Overnight layover guide. Sleeping facilities in the public zone or boarding area
Keflavík airport is small and open 24 hours a day. Although it's not advisable to stay on the premises overnight (you'll even see numerous warning signs inside the terminal), airport staff generally don't disturb passengers who choose to get some sleep inside the enclosure, although they will wake everyone up around 4:00 am. The place, while quiet at night, is cold and brightly lit, so it is advisable to have a sleeping bag, blankets and a sleeping mask handy.
Where to rest: You can find plenty of benches to lie down on, especially by the C gates and in some cafes. Depending on your flight and class of travel, you may also have access to the airport VIP lounge, although it is closed at night. There is also a hotel about 100 metres from the terminal.
Baggage: Lockers are available on the ground floor.
Eating and drinking: Food outlets only operate during flight times.
Restrooms: Showers are available in the VIP lounge, but not in the public toilets.
Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, children's play areas, baby changing facilities.
The Aurora Hotel is about 100 metres from the terminal. There are more options nearby, some with shuttle services for guests.
