In May, 2015, Icelandair Group received the President of Iceland’s Export Award for achievement in the exporting of Icelandic products and services to overseas markets. The presentation took place at a special ceremony at the presidential residence Bessastadir. Björgólfur Jóhannsson, Icelandair Group's CEO, accepted the award from the President of Iceland, Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson. When selecting candidates for the award, particular attention is given to the value generated by the exports, the proportion of exports to total sales and the marketing of products to new areas. The achievement is granted in recognition for contribution to the reinforcement of export trade and procure of foreign currency for the Icelandic Nation and was the 27th time the awards were given, starting in year 1989.
And now 8 months later we can be proud of having the President of Iceland's Export Award on our Icelandair Cargo planes.
