Icelandair’s check-in and baggage claim will move to Terminal 2 on Monday, 13 April.

The check-in for Icelandair, flying under the code FI, will be carried out in Terminal 2 at desks 240–271. Upon arrival, baggage will be claimed from the hall 2A.

We would like to ask all Icelandair passengers to take this terminal change into account. Flight tickets and travel documents may still have the old terminal number.

Icelandair operates a non-stop route from Helsinki to Reykjavik once a day, during some weekdays even twice a day. You can search for timetables and connections in our flight search.

Why do carriers change terminal?

Terminal changes are not very common, but sometimes they are needed.

Typically, changes are made due to carrier timetable changes. In such a case, part of the carrier’s or airport’s logistics may change significantly.

Changed check-in, security control or aircraft parking processes, for instance, may hinder smooth operations in the current terminal. Another terminal may offer more capacity for the timetable in question.

The moving of a carrier to another terminal requires extremely careful preparations. Carriers review their check-in and baggage processes with their forwarding company and make changes into their information systems.

The airport, for its part, ensures the functionality of IT connections, takes the impact on aircraft parking and passenger guidance into account as well as supports the carrier in passenger communications.
