Weather services in Icelandic airports

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).

Isavia emphasizes the following regarding public release of meteorological information from airports

The above-mentioned information is only intended to serve as further information to the meteorological information transmitted from specified airports, such as METAR and SPECI, and by no means replaces that information.

It should be noted that all the data is unreviewed real time data, and Isavia does not guarantee that the data is always accessible and updated.
Measuring values are to be automatically updated every two minutes.

Meteorological observations from weather stations are to be automatically updated every thirty minutes.

Additional automated weather observations appear in the case of sudden changes in weather which exceed certain limits.
