Air Atlanta Icelandic is the largest ACMI service provider in the world, and offers tailor-made solutions to other carriers, both in the passenger and cargo industry.


  • Flight duration is 2.5-5 hours to Europe; 5.5-6 hours to the United States and Canada.

The domestic airport of Saudarkrokur services flight routes to Reykjavik, the capitol of Iceland. Although this single runway airfield has only been used as domestic airport for propeller airplanes it is capable of servicing small sized cargo planes. Some improvements are needed at the airport to make it capable of landing large cargo planes.
