The winning proposal (pdf) for a new masterplan for Keflavík International Airport (KEF) has been revealed. Six international developing consultancy firms sent basic proposals but the Norwegian firm Nordic - Office of Architecture had the winning proposal and will now get the job of fully developing the masterplan. The plan suggest very ambitious development of the airport in the next 25 years. The current terminal building would be greatly expanded, a new north pier added and the south one expanded to serve a total of 32 aircraft stands (compared to the current 12 stands). A new runway would be added to the west of the terminal and new cargo facilities developed to the east. The plan accomodates a rail station that could be linked to the expanded terminal for a rail line to Reykjavík.
