Birkir Holm Gudnason
CEO Icelandair

Icelandair is a leading airline offering flights to and from Iceland, and an attractive option for cross-Atlantic flights. Its business strategy is based on the geographical position of Iceland, midway between North Europe and the eastern coast of the USA.
The airline operates out of Iceland, and uses the country’s geographical location, as an opportunity to build an ever-growing network of international routes with Iceland as a hub.
Icelandair provides safe, reliable flights and exceptional service on flights to metropolitan areas on both sides of the Atlantic.
By uniting on one aircraft, passengers traveling to and from Iceland, with passengers crossing the Atlantic via Iceland, Icelandair has expanded and reinforced its network continuously over the last decades. Icelandair connects 26 gateways in Europe with 18 gateways in North America, through Iceland as a hub.
The network is based on 24-hour rotation, with connecting flights leaving Iceland in the mornings and afternoons.
