Founded in 2008, Norlandair is an Icelandic airline with deep roots tracing back to 1974. The company was established after acquiring the Twin Otter flight operations from Air Iceland. Originating as North Air in Akureyri, it later merged with Icelandair’s domestic operations, eventually adopting the Norlandair name. With a blend of scheduled and charter flights, Norlandair serves as a crucial link for Iceland and the surrounding Arctic regions, including Greenland and Svalbard. The company’s headquarters is located in Akureyri, with Friðrik Adolfsson at its helm as CEO.
Norlandair currently operates scheduled flights to six destinations: Grímsey, Vopnafjörður, Þórshöfn, Gjögur, Bíldudalur, and Nerlerit Inaat Airport, originating from its hubs at Akureyri Airport and Reykjavík Airport. In addition to these regular routes, the airline offers charter flights spanning across Iceland, Greenland, Svalbard, and other Arctic regions.
Norlandair’s fleet is well-equipped to tackle the challenging Arctic terrains, consisting of three de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otters, a model synonymous with the airline since its early days. They also operate a Beechcraft B200 King Air, and a GippsAero GA8 Airvan, ensuring a diverse range to suit various aviation needs.
