Iceland Air


Our Fleet

Icelandair operates a fleet of Boeing 757 jets on its scheduled routes. The planes’ seats and entertainment systems will be renewed in 2008. Icelandair’s entire fleet is fitted with comprehensive safety equipment, in many cases exceeding the general requirements of international flight regulations. The planes also meet the strictest international environmental requirements, regarding both noise limits and the emission of harmful substances.

Icelandair and its forerunners, Flugleidir, Flugfélag Íslands and Loftleidir, have been involved in flight operations since 1937, and established international routes in 1945. The fleet included turbojets from 1957 and jets from 1967. Between 1989 and 1992 the company replaced all of its planes, introducing new Boeing 737-400 and 757-200 jets and Fokker 50 turboprop airliners.

Today, Icelandair uses Boeing 757-200 and Boeing 757-300 jets for scheduled flights, and the company also oversees flights for other companies within Icelandair Group. Most of the fleet is assigned to providing conventional scheduled flights between Iceland and other countries, although some planes are leased to a number of domestic and foreign charter projects.
