Our route network
The first half of 2021, Icelandair’s operations were at a minimum, still being marked by the effects of the pandemic. Travel restrictions were still in place at most of our destinations, and demand for flights was limited due to the spread of the Delta variant of the virus. Icelandair continued to emphasize maintaining efficient air transport, connecting Iceland to the world, both for passengers and freight. On the other hand, the number of passengers on domestic flights increased between years.
There was an immediate increase in passengers in the second half of the year with Icelandair's capacity reaching 50% of pre-Covid levels in the summer. International and domestic flights increased parallel to vaccinations progress and the easing of travel restrictions.
