PLAY, Iceland’s new low-cost budget airline, is now offering flights to Orlando. Like the other Icelandic airlines, PLAY will also let passengers book a ticket to mainland Europe that includes a stopover in Iceland. Destinations available include Berlin, Dublin, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, London, and Paris.
The airline will be offering some of the lowest transatlantic fares ever. When tickets went on sale February 23rd, a roundtrip ticket cost only $129 USD.
The flights are operated on an A321neo and PLAY is banking on Orlando’s large base of leisure travelers. PLAY is also looking to tap into the large demand for European travel. According to numerous studies, Americans are ready to resume international travel, with Europe being their top destination of choice. According to Travel Weekly, Europe is expecting just 20% fewer travelers in 2022 than in 2019 – which was the biggest year for travel in decades – proving that Europe still remains a bucket-list destination for many. Plus, with restrictions still in place in other parts of the world, Europe remains a more familiar and comfortable travel destination for many travelers.
Orlando will join PLAY’s three already-operating routes in America, which include Boston, Baltimore, and Stewart Airport in Poughkeepsie, New York.
