Icelandic airline Icelandair has ordered seven Blended Winglet Systems and the airline has an option for 15 more.

The installation of the Blended Winglet Systems will reportedly be performed by Icelandair Technical Services and will start in October 2005. Aviation Partners Boeing 757-200 Blended Winglets are said to lower an airline's fuel consumption by up to 5% depending upon the length of the flight, or extend the range capability of a typically configured aircraft by as much as 200 nautical miles.

No financial details have been disclosed.
