I believe an online reservation is mandatory and can be arranged thru any hostel or hotel.
>>>>>>for such a sparsely populated country, they put the airport really far from the city.
That is one reason you visit the Duty Free Shop on your way INTO the country. Those cheap bottles of booze you buy are valuable as tips/gifts at hostels and guest houses. A Jeep and Driver rental is real cheap there.

Keflavík International Airport is 31 mi southwest of Reykjavík. In contrast, Narita International Airport built in one of the most crowded places in the planet is 37 miles east of central Tokyo.
The airport was built for military use in WWII, by American forces, which explains it's distant location. The air terminal found itself in the middle of a secure military zone. Travelers had to pass through military check points to reach their flights, until 1987, when the civilian terminal was relocated.
I flew out of BWI on Iceland Air in 1984 , connecting to Sweden. At that time the overnight layovers were a little more difficult in Iceland, so people contented themselves with buying fuzzy sweaters at the airport.
