Despite the COVID pandemic, Icelandair Cargo managed to maintain a strong position in 2020. The pandemic had a significant impact on Icelandair’s Cargo operation during 2020 as all other Icelandair Group units, however in a different way. In recent years Icelandair Cargo has increased the cargo utilization of the Icelandair passenger network considerably. Before the pandemic, around 70% of the goods were transported by the passenger network. After the passenger operation almost disappeared due to the pandemic, the challenge was to re-establish the cargo operation by increasing the freighter aircraft operation. It was decided to simplify the freighter operation by focusing on two destinations, Liege in Europe and Boston in USA. Freighters were flown out of Iceland up to 20 times a week to those two destinations, and the main emphasis was to secure access for fresh Icelandic fish to its fundamental markets. At the same time, it was essential to secure access for import to Iceland, both traditional import as well as medical supplies. A great share of cargo capacity disappeared due to global collapsing of the passenger network. Due to this change, some opportunities opened in different markets. Icelandair Cargo managed to benefit from some of them by generating revenues from transit freight transported from Europe to N-America.
