I’ve been taking a keen interest in aviation in different countries, Iceland had caught my eye with its unfair scenery (sadly being flat). What better way to promote Iceland with its short-haul network by requesting this? Why should this be in it? Well, it creates a large opportunity of flying domestically around Iceland with a quaint, simple and beautiful livery. It is a Subsidiary of the Icelandair Group which grants Icelandair a large monopoly on domestic flying here via Reykjavik’s domestic airport: BIRK. Not only does it open up routes around Iceland, but Greenland too flying to Kulusuk, Nuuk, Ilulissat, and the notorious Narsarsuaq. All done with just 1 extra livery.
It was first delivered to Scandinavian Airlines in March of 2001 as LN-RDM
And was transferred to FlyBe as G-ECOV in 2008
Then it was given to Colgan Air as N33WQ in 2011
Before flying for Air Niugini in 2012 as P2-PXQ
And finally given to AIC in 2015.
I absolutely love Iceland and the airlines that operate there, I could fly this from Reykjavik (no not Keflavik, Reykjavik City Airport) to Akureyri and not get bored, especially with the scenery of Iceland.
