Since I was flying Icelandair Saga Premium class from Keflavik International Airport, I had an opportunity to spend some time in the Icelandair Saga Lounge before my flight. Below is my review and thoughts on the decor, seating, food, drinks and other amenities.

Icelandair Saga Lounge Location

Icelandair Saga Lounge is the only lounge in Keflavik International Airport (KEF). The lounge is located after security but before passport control. Make sure to leave some extra time to go through passport control.

The Saga Lounge is open from 5pm to 5pm daily but has longer hours in the summer season.

Icelandair Saga Lounge Access

This is a departure lounge only so guests must hold a boarding pass for a departing flight.

The lounge is accessible to first and business class passengers on Icelandair and a few other airlines (including Delta and United) as well as certain credit card holders. You can find the full access list on this PDF here.

Passengers can not purchase access to Saga Lounge and it is not a member of Priority Pass. This is good for those of us that have access because it keeps the lounge from getting too crowded.

Initial Impression of Icelandair Saga Lounge

Icelandair Saga Lounge is fairly large (about 14530 sq ft) and feels spacious.

Even though the lounge was fairly busy while I was there (mid-afternoon before most flights to the US), it was still quiet and relaxing.

The Nordic design is inspired by Icelandic nature and incorporates natural elements like lava rocks throughout the lounge.

Final Review of Icelandair Saga Lounge in Keflavik

Overall, I thought the Icelandair Saga Lounge in Keflavik Airport was a nice lounge. In addition to comfortable seats and a relaxing environment, the lounge offers a good selection of food and drinks to enjoy before your departing flight.
