Air Iceland Network, 2011

Two dull marketing statements overwhelm the cool arctic shine of Air Iceland's route map, showing the island nation itself, its glacier fields demarcated in white. The airline operates its pegasus-emblazoned props out of Reykjavík's airport in the city's center (Keflavík is not served) to the tiny communities in the north and northeast of the country, as well as a half-dozen settlements on nearby Greenland, which is unfortunately not charted here.

A connection to the main airport on the Farøe Islands, at Vágar, is also indicated by an arrow at bottom-right. Its nice that the airline is low-cost and reasonably low-fare, but somewhat unfortunate that the Nordic exoticness is in turn so under-celebrated.
