With headquarters in their capital city Reykjavík, Icelandair is the main airline of Iceland. Icelandair schedules services to 39 cities in 16 countries across Europe and North America. Iceland’s unique geographical positioning between the European mainland and North America allows for 1 stop transatlantic flights, which are the pillar of the airline's business strategy. Founded in 1937, the airline operates using a relatively young fleet (average age of 20 years old) of 26 Boeing 737-767 aircraft. Icelandair has codeshare and interline agreements with a number of highly acclaimed airlines including Aeroflot, Finnair, Air Canada, Air France, Air Greenland, AirBaltic, Austrian Airlines, British Airways, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Czech Airlines, Emirates, Frontier Airline, LOT Polish Airlines, Lufthansa, Swiss International Air Lines and United Airlines. Icelandair has adopted a strict environmental policy in keeping with Iceland's image as an environmentally friendly country. As such, many steps have been taken to reduce the airline’s carbon footprint.
Passengers can check-in online for flights to Europe and Canada within 36 hours of the flight’s departure and within 24 hours for flights to the US. Check-in closes 60 minutes prior to departure for all destinations.
Mobile check-in is also available for many destinations. Passengers flying to Boston (BOS), Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis, New York, Orlando, Portland, Seattle, and Washington DC are able to check in via mobile, but still need to acquire a boarding pass from the check-in desk at the airport.
