This week Icelandair’s first of two Boeing 767s entered service. The second airplane will enter service later this month on May 15th. It is configured with 262 seats, which is nearly a 44% capacity increase once it takes over selected flights currently flown with the smaller 757s.
Since they were acquired in winter, the aircraft have undergone a total refurbishment. The aircraft now feature the standard Icelandair cabin you see on the 757s, along with special amenities like gate-to-gate Wi-Fi, mood lighting, personal in-flight entertainment and more
The aircraft will serve popular destinations like New York, Boston and Chicago on the North American side and London, Copenhagen and Amsterdam in Europe.
In recent years, Icelandair has grown their fleet to 28 aircraft. The 26 Boeing 757s and two new 767s have helped Icelandair nearly triple their route network. At this summer season’s peak, the airline will offer more than 100 daily departures to Europe, Iceland and North America
