The terminal building offers a wide variety of shops and services with an emphasis on top quality service with flexible opening hours. All retail sale and services operated in the departure hall are located within the duty-free zone and are, therefore, duty- and tax-free.

Outside of the terminal building you will find these works of art:

Regnboginn við Leifsstöð
