Icelandair-Flugfélag Íslands traces its roots back to 1937 as Flugfélag Akureyrar , then as Flugfélag Íslands ( Flight Company of Iceland) in 1940 for domestic services within the country. For international purposes, the name Iceland Airways was adopted, and in 1945 the company started commercial flights over the Atlantic Ocean from Reykjavík to Largs, Prestwick Airport, Scotland and Copenhagen in Denmark. Until the late 1960s, Icelandair-Flugfélag Íslands concentrated mostly on domestic flights, where it initially faced fierce competition from Loftleiðir, another airline which had been founded in 1944. When Loftleiðir pulled out of the domestic market in 1952 to fully concentrate on international flights, Icelandair-Flugfélag Íslands became the main domestic carrier of the country. In 1973, a holding company called Flugleiðir was created, which combined the merge of the two companies. In 1979, Icelandair-Flugfélag Íslands bought all of Loftleiðir's assets in Flugleiðir, and the airline became known by today's Icelandair.
