Icelandair celebrates the addition of new Boeing 737 MAX



Transatlantic airline, Icelandair welcomes its first new Boeing 737 MAX 8 with a unique celebratory flight ´Iceland By Air´ that took a special route over some of Iceland´s most stunning landscapes and sights, the company said.

All Icelandair planes are named after Icelandic volcanoes or areas of Iceland´s spectacular natural beauty. The new Boeing 737 MAX 8, named Jokulsarlon, took a special flight to Akureyri where Icelandair was founded in 1937, from the air, passengers were able to see Eyjafjordur, the mountains of the Trollaskagi peninsula and Hvalfjordur by Reykjavík

Hosted by top Icelandic landscape photographer, Páll Jokull, guests on board the celebratory flight were provided with an in-air tutorial to learn how to take the best aerial photographs from the newly designed windows for better viewing. Pall´s photography tips helped passengers to get the perfect shot: using the aircraft´s new LED lighting system to light the photo and the better-designed cabin windows to help frame it.

Icelandair´s new Boeing 737 MAX 8 provides an improved customer flying experience with a redesigned cabin interior and customizable LED lighting. The enhanced cabin features a Boeing Sky Interior, fitted with modern-sculptured walls that cleverly lead your eye to the window. Additional thoughtful touches have been added, with larger overhead cabins to give passengers extra space to store their carry-on luggage more easily.

Icelandair offers service to and from Iceland through Icelandair´s hub at Keflavik International Airport serving 23 destinations in North America and more than 25 destinations in Scandinavia, the UK, and Continental Europe. Icelandair also allows passengers to take an Icelandair Stopover, in Iceland, for up to seven nights at no additional airfare.
