Iceland’s flag-carrier Icelandair has unveiled a new livery on its three Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. This is the first time the airline has changed its aircraft livery design since 2006.

As part of its rebranding, the airline plans to have five Boeing 737 MAXs in fresh livery by the end of February 2022.
Icelandair’s aircraft will have five different colors: boreal blue, magenta, sky blue, yellow, and green, representing “different phenomena in Icelandic nature”.
The airline’s first Boeing 737 MAX 8, registered as TF-ICE, was painted in new colors in mid-January 2022. The aircraft arrived at Keflavik International Airport (KEF) from a painting facility in Norwich, the United Kingdom on January 28, 2022. The first arrival wears a sky-blue tail.
“By extending our color palette, we have a chance to bring the vibrant Icelandic spirit to the world, and to show the world the diversity of our people: The Icelandic spirit is available to anyone and everyone who wants to share in it,” according to the airline’s statement.
