Icelandic flag carrier Icelandair still intends to go ahead with its planned initial public offering (IPO) in the autumn, chief executive Jon Karl Olafsson told Icelandic Financial News (IFN) on Wednesday (6 September).

Preparations for the listing have been completed but unfavourable market conditions delayed the floatation, which was first announced in February.

The listing could therefore take place at short notice, Olafsson said.

Icelandic investment company FL Group owns Icelandair, as well as Danish budget airline Sterling Airlines.

Hannes Smarason, FL Group's chief executive, said at the company's second quarter earnings presentation that listing Icelandair on the Icelandic Stock Exchange was still planned before the end of the year, when market conditions improved.
