Icelandair notes anniversary with new kit line

By Rick Lundstrom

Icelandair is launching a new amenity kit this spring in Saga Class designed by skysupply to celebrate 80 years in business as an airline.

In 1937, the fledgling airline Flugfélag Akureyrar was founded on the north coast of Iceland. Eighty years later, the country’s national carrier, Icelandair is an established airline.

“We are very delighted to be part of Icelandair’s jubilee celebrations and compliment the national carrier on its long-term success. It is our pleasure to work with such an established airline and we are looking forward to an ongoing visionary cooperation,” says Wolfgang Bücherl, Managing Director of skysupply.

The beautiful and dramatic landscape that the island has to offer year round, is distinctive, and makes a popular travel destination. The amenity kits are made in the form of branded cans with scenic images of the island.

There are four signature motifs representing the destination’s variety and adding to the after use or as collectors’ items or storage for small items. They are filled with a dental set (tooth brush and tooth paste), earplugs, socks, a comfortable, extra large eye mask, and a collection of Blue Lagoon cosmetic items (hand cream, mineral moisturizer cream and lip balm).

Except for the cosmetics and the cans, an elegant black dominates the color concept. To round up the jubilee edition, another local reference was made by cooperating with the exclusive Blue Lagoon Iceland cosmetics company. The products are made with silica, mineral salt, and algae are sourced from Iceland’s Blue Lagoon.
