A BAe-125-800A, N812AM, touched down on runway 01 at Keflavik Airport (BIKF) at 06:03 with 8 persons on board on a medevac flight.
Runway 01 at BIKF is 3054 meters long and the commander, who was the Pilot Flying (PF), had estimated that the required landing distance was 2000 feet (about 610 meters).
ATC instructed the PF to clear runway 01 at the end of the runway, using taxiway N. The PF therefore continued to taxi down runway 01 after landing, having slowed down to taxi speed, towards taxiway N.
At the end of RWY 01, where the runway meets taxiway N, the PF reported encountering black ice and having difficulty slowing further down before turning onto taxiway N.
According to a witness, N812AM did not seem to slow down its runway taxi speed, before it reached the end of runway 01.
Once the aircraft entered the threshold lines for runway 19, the aircraft started braking. The aircraft skidded off the runway and entered the safety area at the edge of the runway before stopping.
N812AM slid of the end of runway 01, after having only been able to turn partially towards taxiway N.
After exiting the aircraft one of the aircraft crewmembers fell on the paved safety zone area due to its icy condition. The crewmember that fell on the paved safety zone was not injured during the event.

The ITSB believes the cause of the runway excursion, of aircraft N812AM, to be poor RWY condition at the far end of the runway
