New Icelandic airline PLAY will start flight operations at the end of June 2021. The airline will initially fly to seven destinations in Europe from Reykjavik with three modern Airbus A321neo aircraft. PLAY’s maiden flight will be to London Stansted on 24th June 2021. Tickets can now be booked via www.flyplay.com.
Flights to Tenerife will then begin on 29th, with Berlin added on 2nd July. Later on in July, flights to Paris, Copenhagen, Alicante and Barcelona will all commence.
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.
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.
