Bluebird Cargo was established in the year 2000 in Iceland by a group of local businesses and individuals with a solid background in aviation and airfreight.
The company received its Aircraft Operating Certificate in early 2001 under JAROPS1, and was the first Icelandic airline to be certified from the start of operations under this European standard.
Operations started in March of 2001, with one B737-300 freighter aircraft routing daily from Iceland via the United Kingdom to Cologne, Germany.
Today Bluebird Cargo operates a fleet of 5 aircraft, one B737-400 and four B737-300.
Bluebird Cargo is more than “just” an ACMI provider. With a strong background in air cargo, this company is able to provide all inclusive cargo services. Bluebird Cargo has the potential to provide blocked space or part-charter / scheduled capacity to freight forwarders and integrators on long term basis, and independently fill remaining cargo capacity of the flights through an extensive network of partners and associated companies.
At Bluebird Cargo the emphasis is on CARGO, and not only the BIRD.
