Introducing Boeing 737 MAX

Over the last few years, Boeing has developed a groundbreaking new aircraft that combines less fuel use, less noise and a revolutionary redesign of the passenger space. The result is a flight like you’ve never known before.

We are proud to be among the very first airlines to take the aircraft of the future into use. Over the coming years, we’ll receive a total of 16 Boeing 737 MAX planes and we look forward to sharing the new way of flying with our passengers.

A more powerful lightweight engine

The Boeing 737 MAX uses 20% less fuel and leaves a 40% smaller noise footprint than its predecessors, even though the engines are more powerful. This is due, both to a new aerodynamic design of the body and wings (notably spilt tip winglets) and a revolutionary design of the engines.

The engine blades are made of super strong carbon, woven together with a 3D-technique. This means each engine is over 500 lbs lighter than before, saving fuel and creating less pollution.

The new Boeing Sky Interior

Boeing were firmly set on the passenger experience when redesigning their aircraft. With the aid of sociologists, psychologists and of course passengers themselves, the new Boeing Sky Interior was born.

The interior design focuses on the wellbeing and pleasure of the passenger in flight with the addition of newly designed windows for better viewing. Ambient LED lighting and new overhead compartments also contribute to a feeling of more space on board.

Will your photo be featured in our Stopover Magazine and on our website?

Using the excellent view from the new Boeing 737 MAX, we encourage all passengers to take an out of the window shot of Iceland during their flight and enter a fun game.

If you share your photo on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #IcelandByAir and tag @Icelandair in the description before May 12 2018, it could feature in a special spread in our in-flight Stopover Magazine and a photo exhibition on our website.
