Icelandair Technical Stop

Why does Icelandair make a "technical stop" in Stavanger enroute from Bergen to Reykjavik? Just curious if someone might know the answer to this? Seems odd to me. No passengers are picked up in Stavanger.

It is not a technical stop -- FI offers a direct flight between KEF and both BGO and SVG -- the only restriction is that PAX cannot travel between BGO-SVG.

I see now that they do pick up passengers on the stop. I was actually looking at the wrong date and the stopover is actually at Trondheim...and I now can see that bookings are possible from Trondheim - Reykjavik.
