Icelandair is a leading airline offering flights to, from, via and within Iceland – our hub and home. We provide safe, reliable flights with exceptional service to metropolitan areas on both sides of the Atlantic. Flying domestically within Iceland and to destinations in Greenland, Icelandair is a leading option for Transatlantic travel.
The airline operates out of Iceland and makes use of the country’s geographical location, midway between North America and Europe, to build an ever-growing network of international routes, with Iceland as a hub
Icelandair Group has put sustainability at the top of the agenda. The company is committed to doing what it takes to succeed in this area and has developed clear goals and action plans based on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
We run an active fuel-monitoring program aimed at reducing CO2 emissions. Pilots are trained in flying techniques such as CDA (constant descent approach) and RAA (reduced acceleration altitude), which result in less noise pollution and reduced fuel consumption. Using software, each pilot can monitor their individual contribution to fuel savings as well as compare their efforts to that of colleagues.
We use a centralized tactical fleet management program to actively manage aircraft in the air, to reduce flying speed and thus fuel consumption of aircraft that are likely to arrive ahead of schedule.
At Icelandair, we like to emphasize the common purpose of our enterprise, that we are all in the same team. Every department of the company plays an important role in providing quality service to our customers.
At Icelandair, we are all part of one team. Our core values – simplicity, responsibility and passion – guide us in everything that we do and provide the foundation for our company culture.
When a new strategic vision was introduced in 2019, we crystalized our aim to bring the spirit of Iceland to the world. This is a spirit of warmth, optimism and determination.
In keeping this as our focus, we are able to deliver smooth and enjoyable travel experiences for our customers and build a strong feeling of connectedness within Icelandair.
