Icelandairgroup hf.: Traffic Data September 2021

·3-min read

The number of Icelandair‘s international passengers and the total capacity increased significantly in September 2021 compared to September 2020.

The total number of passengers on international and domestic flights was over 212,000 compared to around 25,000 in September 2020. Thereof, the total number of passengers on international flights was around 191,000 compared to around 12,000 in September 2020. The number of passengers to Iceland was around 102,000 compared to around 6,000 in September 2020. The number of passengers from Iceland was around 23,000 compared to around 6,000 in September 2020. VIA passengers were around 65,000, compared to a few hundred in September 2020. On time performance was 88%.

The load factor on international flights was 62% compared to 45% in September 2020. Increased uncertainty in relation to the spread of the Delta variant had a negative effect on the load factor in September. In addition, as in previous months, deployment of Boeing 767 aircraft on several routes instead of smaller aircraft due to strong cargo demand still somewhat negatively impacted the passenger load factor. U.S. authorities recently confirmed that they plan on opening their borders to vaccinated European tourists. This has already positively impacted bookings and the expected load factor in the months ahead.

The number of passengers on domestic flights was around 21,500 compared to 13,000 in September 2020. Year to date, the increase in domestic passengers has been 57% compared to 2020.

The number of sold block hours in charter flights increased by 153% compared to September 2020. Freight measured in Freight Tonne Kilometres, increased by 42% compared to September 2020 and has increased by 23% year-on-year during the first nine months of 2021.
