Icelandic photographer and aviation industry observer Bergdís Norðdahl is in conversation with RGN deputy editor John Walton this week, talking about one of the world’s most fascinating aviation markets: the international flights via and domestic demand from Keflavik Airport in Reykjavik.

What do Icelanders want from Icelandair and WOW Air? Is WOW’s customer-wowing pricing sustainable? Will WOW U-turn over connectivity? And what’s next in passenger experience from one of the world’s key Boeing 757 niche markets?
