TF-LLX Icelandair Boeing 757-256(WL) - cn 29311 / 940 coming in to land at London Heathrow Airport. Aircraft is named Skjaldbreiður Icelandair is the main airline of Iceland, headquartered at Reykjavík Airport in Reykjavík. It is part of the Icelandair Group and, during the summer of 2015, operated scheduled services to 39 cities in 16 countries on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean out of its hub at Keflavík International Airport. The geographical position of Iceland allows one-stop transatlantic flights, which are one pillar of the airline's business strategy, along with traffic to and from the country. Currently the only aircraft operating in Icelandair's fleet are 757-200s and a single 757-300, with nine 737 MAX 8s and seven 737 MAX 9s on order. All of the aircraft in Icelandair's fleet are named after Icelandic volcanoes.All have also been upgraded with state-of-the-art glass cockpits. Skjaldbreiður, meaning the broad shield in Icelandic, is an Icelandic lava shield formed in one huge and protracted eruption roughly 9, 000 years ago. The extensive lava fields which were produced by this eruption, flowed southwards, and formed the basin of Þingvallavatn, Iceland's largest lake, and Þingvellir, the "Parliament Plains" where the Icelandic national assembly, the Alþing was founded in 930. The volcano culminates at 1, 060 meters, and its crater measures roughly 300 meters in diameter. Straddling the Mid-Atlantic ridge, the lava fields from Skjaldbreiður have been torn and twisted over the millennia, forming a multitude of fissures and rifts inside the Þingvellir National Park, the best known of which are Almannagjá, Hrafnagjá and Flosagjá
