Gjögur Airport



The Gjögur Airport ( IATA: GJR; ICAO: BigJ ) is an airport which serves the population of the Árneshreppurdistriktes in the Westfjords in northwestern Iceland, on the coast of Húnaflói Bay. The airport is operated temporarily by an AFIS controller, and is only open for flights of Eagle Air, which are conducted once a week in summer and in winter twice a week. The Gjögur airport is very important for the local population. In winter, the air link is the only way to reach the region, since the road is impassable. The Icelandic government is implementing these flights to supply the population with food and other things, and also to transport passengers. The Eagle Air is the only airline which flies to the region.
