Skagafjörður could be a hub for international flights

Bjarni Jónsson ,Deputy MP for the Left Green Party in Sauðárkrókur, a town in Skagafjörður, North Iceland, says that landing conditions for aircraft in the town are probably the best in the whole of Iceland. 

"We just need to improve equipment and find out what is needed to make it happen," he said to Morgunblaðið. Jónsson furthermore put a query forward at Parliament to see what kind of investment would be needed to install an international airport at Sauðárkrókur where the small Alexandersflugvöllur is situated. 

He thinks it's a realistic option to make the airport a secondary airport to Keflavik International Airport for those planes unable to land there.
