Flights for children2003
In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Icelandair set up a fund to give children with long-term illnesses or those living in special circumstances the chance to travel. The idea came from Peggy Helgason, who has worked for many years as a volunteer at the children's hospital in Reykjavík. Every year the fund allows at least 20 children and their families to take a dream trip. The program is financed by Icelandair and their passengers who donate frequent flier points or any currency to the cause while on board.
