This is where they’ll be flying.

Icelandair has 48 passenger and freight aircraft, both active and inactive. It has 19 Boeing 757-200s, 13 737 MAX 8s, five 767-300ERs, four 737 MAX 9s, three Dash-8-200s, two 757-300s, and two Dash-8-Q400s. Three of its 767s are in passenger configuration, while two are freighters. This article looks at its passenger 767s and where they will be flying this summer.

Three passenger 767s

Each aircraft has 262 seats: 25 in Saga Premium with recliners (business; 2-1-2 layout) and 237 in economy (2-3-2). Obviously, the widebodies have more seats than any other type in its fleet and are also good for freight. ch-aviation provides details of the trio:

  1. TF-ISN: 22.6-years-old, delivered to Air New Zealand in August 2000, with Icelandair in August 2015
  2. TF-ISO: 23.1-years-old, to Air New Zealand in April 2000, with Icelandair in February 2016
  3. TF-ISW: 25.5-years-old, to Air New Zealand in October 1997, with Icelandair in October 2016

Colorful histories

All three have a colorful history. Consider TF-ISO. According to ch-aviation, it has been used by Air New Zealand (ZK-NCN), Flyglobespan (G-CDPT), and Russia’s Transaero (EI-UNC; shown below). Flyglobespan subleased it to Air India, Garuda Indonesia, Gabon Airlines, Air Austral, and NAS Air (now flynas).

Six summer routes

The northern summer season began on March 26th and will end on October 28th. During this time, Cirium shows that Icelandair will use its three passenger 767s on six routes from Keflavik Airport (KEF). They are detailed below in alphabetical order. I have specified other types/variants on each route this summer and the most commonly used equipment:

Icelandair arrives back from Amsterdam at 15:25 and CDG at 15:40. The 767s are then used to Seattle and Boston. Copenhagen returns at 18:05, and the operating 767 has no more flying on the 13th.
