The third addition to our network marks the first time in its history that Icelandair will offer non-stop flights to and from the heart of America. Today our network is bigger and stronger than ever, and we offer our passengers more flights, more connections, and a refreshing alternative to Iceland and beyond. We look forward to once again welcoming San Francisco and Baltimore on board, and we warmly welcome Kansas City,” says Icelandair CEO Bjorgolfur Johannsson.

The Unique Vatnajökull:

We are pleased to welcome Vatnajökull to our fleet, our brand new special livery aircraft inspired by the largest glacier in Europe. No need to worry - the service on board will be as warm as always.

The new Vatnajökull plane also features wonderful touches of glacier magic within its interiors to replicate the experience of the Vatnajökull glacier itself. Ambient moving LED blue lighting will be installed in the main cabin; the headrests will be adorned with a beautiful ice white and brilliant turquoise design. Even the drinks trolley will be transformed into a mini ice-cave, while cups, napkins, and even sick bags will be decorated with glacier prints!
