Icelandair has received a new B737 Max, the first of three set to be delivered this year.
The airline has a total of 16 of the 737 Max 8 and 9 series aircraft on order, with delivery expected to be completed by 2021.
The plane, which arrived today, will remain in Seattle through the first week of March for pilot training and inspections. From there, Icelandair says the aircraft will be sent to Keflavik airport, where seats will be installed and further details will be completed. It will sport a new livery for Icelandair, with a lighter colour palette, a grey belly and a “cleaner” tail design.
The aircraft will enter the airline’s current fleet with a flight to Germany on 6 April.
