Meet Hekla Aurora

Dressed in the beautiful colors of an Icelandic winter landscape, our aircraft Hekla Aurora flies the northern lights across the Atlantic every day of the year. Not only is our Boeing 757 wrapped in this exquisite livery, but in addition, Hekla Aurora’s interior is illuminated with beautiful one-of-a-kind mood lighting recreating the fabulous display of the Aurora Borealis.

Our new livery is just one component of our campaign celebrating the Icelandair Stopover. This exciting option allows you to stopover in Iceland for up to seven nights at no additional airfare on your way between Europe and North America, giving you the time to explore the beautiful, unparalleled sights of our home country.
