Reykjavik, Iceland - Icelandair is modifying three of its four Boeing 767ER jets to transport medical supplies from China to Europe.

The Icelandic carrier has signed an agreement with the German logistics company DB Schenker, a Deutsche Bahn subsidiary, for 45 cargo flights between Shanghai in China and Munich in Germany. The airline will transport medical equipment for health care providers across Europe. Additional flights from Shanghai to Chicago, USA, through Iceland are also part of the agreement.

Like other carriers around the world, Icelandair is also suffering significant revenue losses due to the lack of demand for air travel amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“One of the key strengths of Icelandair Group is the flexibility to be able to respond quickly to opportunities and execute them in a short period of time,”

says chief executive Bogi Nils Bogason.

The 767-300ERs joined the Icelandic fleet in 2016 to complement the airline's Boeing 757 fleet.
