Icelandair this week entered into service the first of two Boeing 767s, with the second scheduled to begin departures on May 15, 2016. With a capacity of 262 passengers, the newest members of Icelandair’s fleet allows for an increase of up to 44% in available seats on select routes.
The B767 has more capacity for Cargo, or 3-4x times more than the B757. This will allow for more air freight transport through our network, as well as greater reliability for our main routes.
An agreement has now been signed on the purchase of two more Boeing 767 aircrafts. Four B767-300 aircrafts will therefore be used to serve the Icelandair route network in 2017.
