Icelandair helped alleviate the long days of darkness last night with the launch of their Aurora Borealis-themed plane, the Hekla Aurora. The launch, part of Icelandair’s #MyStopover campaign, culminated in Reykjavik as the plane flew over an illuminated Hallgrimskirkja church - a prelude to the city’s annual Winter Lights Festival which begins tomorrow.
The Hekla Aurora is part of Icelandair’s transatlantic fleet, providing passengers an experience of the Aurora Borealis while on board, both with its interior mood lighting, and the new Aurora Borealis livery on the exterior. As the Boeing 757 flew over Reykjavik city yesterday, passengers experienced the dancing lights of the on-board Aurora Borealis, with Icelandic music as the soundtrack, and, adding to the experience, a unique birds-eye view of Hallgrimskirkja church. The plane landed at Reykjavik’s domestic airport to a fanfare welcome as the locals came out in force to celebrate. They were also able to experience the plane for themselves as it was opened to the public.

A unique carbon fabric from Sweden, TeXtreme®, could substantially reduce weight of existing aircraft and thereby enable significant savings in fuel costs for the airlines while contributing to a greener world.
A conservative replacement of current traditional materials with TeXtreme® carbon fiber fabrics, for example—in composite panels in aircraft, could lower the weight of aircraft to the extent that potential fuel cost savings could be in excess of €43,000,000 per annum for 20 major airlines.
