Icelandair has taken delivery of its first Boeing 737 Max, one of 16 of the re-engined family destined for the carrier.

The airline confirms handover of the CFM International Leap-1B-powered aircraft (TF-ICE) took place in Seattle.

Icelandair is scheduled to receive three Max 8s this year and another three next year, when it will also take its first three Max 9s.

The other seven aircraft will arrive over 2020-21.

Flight Fleets Analyzer lists the aircraft as having been received via BoComm Leasing, following a sale-and-leaseback deal covering four Icelandair Max jets signed last year.
