Market share of selected airlines at airports in Iceland 2019

In 2019, the Icelandic airline market was dominated by one national operator. Icelandair ranked highest with a market share of nearly 16 percent reached at airports in Iceland. Other airlines from the Nordic countries ranked here are SAS Scandinavian Airlines, Norwegian Air Shuttle, as well as Air Greenland.

Market shares based on flight numbers

The market shares displayed in the statistic are based on the numbers of flights. That means that over 28 thousand flights from a total of around 181 thousand arrivals and departures at Icelandic airports were served by Icelandair. The former low-cost carrier WOW air accounted for roughly 2.6 thousand flights in 2019.

Icelandair is the only main operator in Iceland

As a result of WOW air’s cessation of operations in March 2019, Icelandair is the only important Icelandic operator on the airline market. The airline serves three different passenger markets: the domestic one (from Iceland), the tourist market (to Iceland), as well as international routes between Europe and North America (via Iceland). The largest market is the last one, with more than half of the passengers travelled via Iceland.
