Icelandair Reviews

Icelandair is the main airline of Iceland, headquartered at Reykjavík Airport in Reykjavík. It is part of the Icelandair Group and currently operates scheduled services to 35 cities in 16 countries on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean out of its hub at Keflavík International Airport. The geographical position of Iceland allows one-stop transatlantic flights, which are one pillar of the airline’s business strategy, along with traffic to and from the country. In 2012, Icelandair transported 2,021,000 passengers, an increase of 16% compared to 2011.

Icelandair offers three booking classes: Economy, Economy Comfort and Saga Class (the latter being equivalent to business class). Free meals are only available in Economy Comfort and Saga Class, and a buy on board service is provided for Economy Class passengers. Icelandair has adopted a strict environmental policy in keeping with Iceland’s image as an unspoiled country with clean air, water, sea and nature in general. The goal of this policy is to minimize Icelandair’s total environmental impact and to establish sustainable practices by optimizing the use of the resources at the company’s disposal. This is done in a variety of ways, from recycling paper in the company’s office to trying to create one of the “greenest” ground crews in the industry at Keflavik Airport to inviting passengers to participate in planting trees. As one of Iceland’s largest companies, Icelandair sponsors many events and charities. The company is, together with the City of Reykjavík, the main sponsor of the hugely popular Iceland Airwaves, the annual music festival held in Reykjavík on the third weekend of October. The festival spans five days (Wednesday – Sunday) and its main focus is showcasing new music, both Icelandic and international. In 2013 the German group Kraftwerk will front the festival.

Icelandair flies from Iceland to 25 destinations in Europe and 10 destinations in North America. Some of these destinations are seasonal.
