Niceair (Akureyri) has enlisted Hi Fly Malta (3L, Malta International) to operate an A319-100 on its behalf when flights commence later this summer.

The start-up virtual carrier said it would run the following routes out of Akureyri:

Niceair's initial schedule is valid through September 30, 2022, although more routes may be added. It hopes to capitalise on both the inbound and outbound market from northern Iceland, bypassing time-consuming connections via Reykjavik Keflavik.

Hi Fly Malta operates two A319-100s. One is currently stored at Rome Fiumicino and the other is at Beja, the ch-aviation fleets module shows.
