Just in on the Icelandic TV Teletext News (directly translated):
"The Icelandic investment company that already owns Iceland Express and Sterling Airlines from Denmark, has purchased the Danish airline Maersk Air. With this new acquisition almost all flight operations from the Danes, with the exception SAS-Scandinavian Airlines, are now in the hands of Icelanders".
How about this news?
This is quite remarkable for a nation of less than 300.000 inhabitants, imagine there are 3 big airline groups here! The above mentioned Fons Group, the Avion Group (Air Atlanta, Excel Airways, Travel City Direct Airlines) and the FL
Group (Icelandair, Loftleidir Icelandic, Air Iceland, FL
leasing, 11% shares of Easyjet)
