Reorganisation of freight services2000
Cargo flights have always played an important role in Icelandair operations. When the company was established in 1973, a special cargo division was created that has since grown year by year. Freight is carried in special cargo aircraft as well as in the holds of passenger aircraft.
At the beginning of the new millennium, the cargo division formed a new subsidiary to attend to the construction of a freight handling centre at Keflavík, which opened in 2001. In 2017, Icelandair Cargo operates two B757-200 cargo aircraft that fly between 50 destinations in Europe and America.
