Icelandair doesn´t expect Boeing 737 MAX in Summer
Minimal impact on flights
In the light of recent news from Boeing on the ongoing process in cooperation with international aviation authorities of returning the Boeing 737-MAX aircraft safely back to service, Icelandair does not expect the MAX in operation within its route network during the high season of next summer.
This will have a minimal impact on Icelandair’s flight schedule 2020 as it was set up with the aim to minimize the impact of a possible further delay in the lifting of the MAX suspension. In addition, Icelandair has already entered into leasing agreements regarding three Boeing 737-800 aircraft and a decision has been made to keep more Boeing 757 aircraft in operation in 2020 than originally planned. The additional aircraft will be operated with Icelandair crews.
In 2020, Icelandair‘s emphasis will continue to be on the tourism market to Iceland and Icelandair expects to transport at least as many passengers to Iceland this year as in 2019.
