The Icelandic airline “PLAY” will begin to launch flights starting soon. They will inaugurate service to London-Stanstead airport from Reykjavik in Iceland sigh an Airbus 321NEO on June 24, 2021.
“Well, I mean in terms of the UK, we’re going to Stansted. That’s a low-cost airport, and it has worked well in the past. The Icelandic passengers know it and it works well.”
Play will also start flights over to Copenhagen in 2021, with more destinations like Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, and Barcelona on the possibility list as well.
PLAY was announced in late 2019, before everything shut down. Because of COVID, they delayed their flight plans but now they’re ready to launch. I’m guessing because of the pandemic they found some favorable lease prices for their A321neos.
