Icelandair & national football team create Team Iceland Stopover

Icelandair has launched ‘Team Iceland Stopover’, a selection of football-inspired experiences created in partnership with the Icelandic national team and free for all passengers to enjoy.

The airline is celebrating the squad’s success of being the smallest nation ever to qualify for the Fifa World Cup by inviting passengers to follow in the footsteps of the players with specially-designed experiences in Iceland for all of the family.

Aron Gunnarsson, captain of Iceland Men’s National Football Team, said: “When stepping onto the pitch, we know that as Iceland players we have a very special team spirit that stems from our Icelandic history. There are many uniquely Icelandic experiences and traditions that make us the team we are today and we welcome fans of football and beyond to come and find out more by taking a Team Iceland Stopover on their next transatlantic journey.”

Available until the end of June, these 90-minute activities cater to a range of traveller’s passion points, from culture to fitness and well-being. To provide passengers with an authentic experience and local insight, all experiences will be hosted by a ‘Stopover Buddy’ and Icelandair staff member.

Björgólfur Jóhannsson, president and CEO of the airline, said: “As proud sponsors of the national team, we are thrilled to celebrate their success this summer with our Team Iceland Stopover service. We are continually looking at ways to enhance our customer experience and hope that passengers will enjoy time well-travelled this summer through this value-added offering. Not only can our passengers find out more about the back-story of this legendary team, but we’ve worked with the players to personally design these experiences, allowing our passengers to follow in their footsteps.”
