Weather services on Airports
Isavia oversees the weather observations for most of the Icelandic airports. Isavia employees or designated subcontractors handle these services which consist either in preparation and transmission of regular weather reports or weather information upon request.
In a few locations, calls can be made to automated weather stations at the airports or in their vicinity. In Keflavik, Akureyri and Reykjavik, special reports are prepared which are transmitted through the Automatic Terminal Information Service (ATIS).
The airports are not equally equipped with weather instruments and interfaces, so what appears under each airport may differ.
Information on weather at Airports and their vicinity
For each airport is shown real-time information, meteorological conditions, weather forecasts and warnings.
Real-time information is shown as a display from the airports measuring devices as well as the information about weather and road conditions from The Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration (IRCA).
Meteorological information for the airports are provided as a report (METAR and SPECI) - and recorded audio reporting through an Automatic Terminal Information Service (ATIS).
