Icelandair has bought two Boeing 757-200s, which it previously had on long-term lease, for an undisclosed sum.

Announcing the deal, Icelandair Group said: “The two aircraft have been used in charter projects and they will continue to operate as such. Icelandair Group also sees opportunities to use the aircraft later in its international scheduled operations.”

According to AerData, Icelandair operates 23 757s, comprising a mix of -200s, -200PF/PCFs and -300s.

In February, the carrier placed a firm order for 16 Boeing 737 MAXs valued at more than $1.6 billion at list prices, building on an original 12-strong commitment, which was announced in December.
