Air Iceland Connect About Air Iceland Connect

The history of the Air Iceland Connect dates back to 1937. Flugfélag Akureyrar was established on June 3 before changing its name to Flugfélag Islands on March 13, 1940. In 1973, the airlines Flugfélag Islands and Loftleioir merged under the name of Flugleioir hf. The domestic division takes the name of Flugleioir while the transatlantic division is called Icelandair. On May 1, 1975, however, it was renamed Flugfélag Norðurlands. A further restructuring and the merger with the airline Icelandair Domestic and Norlandair resulted in the name Air Iceland in 1997. Its headquarters are in the capital Reykjavík, the hubs of the fleet are located at Reykjavík Airport and Akureyri Airport. Air Iceland is the largest subsidiary of the Icelandair Group with around 250 employees.
