PLAY starts flights to Iceland

On-board product

The airlines’ three Airbus A321neo aircraft are relatively new, with an average age of just three years. As you would probably expect, the 192 seats are laid out in a single economy class cabin. Passengers can purchase a selection of hot and cold dishes and drinks on board, using contactless payment.

Bottom line

It is certainly an interesting (and challenging) time to launch a new airline, but PLAY is far from the only one.

With Iceland still not currently on the the travel Green List, you would be wise to wait before booking anything nonrefundable.
