Iceland’s PLAY Announces Fourth U.S. Destination
PLAY airlines has launched its ticket sales to Orlando, Florida in the U.S. PLAY´s first flight to Orlando will be September 30. PLAY will operate flights to Orlando International Airport three times a week, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and from Orlando International Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
The flights, connect through Iceland and go to popular Europe hubs like Berlin, Brussels, Copenhagen, Dublin, London. There are also smaller destinations such as Alicante, Malaga and Tenerife in Spain, Trondheim in Norway and Bologna, Italy. If that sounds familiar, you would be right. That’s the same model that WOW used until it went bankrupt.
Orlando will be PLAY´s fourth destination in the U.S. The other three destinations are Boston, Baltimore/Washington DC and New York, all starting in Spring/Summer 2022.
PLAY will be adding Airbus A321neo Long Range (LR) aircraft to its fleet, making it possible to operate flights to Orlando. PLAY uses the standard model of the Airbus A321neo, but the Airbus A321neo LR is the same aircraft with more fuel capacity and, therefore, capable of flying further than PLAY’s existing Airbus A321s.
The city of Orlando, centrally located in the state of Florida, is a popular destination characterized by adventure, entertainment, fairytales and endless fun in a sunny setting of a modern and happening city. Orlando has more theme parks and attractions than any other destination in the world, including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and Legoland Florida.
It’s always a good thing to have more travel options and PLAY promises to be a more affordable one. However, so far we haven’t seen many great deals besides limited time promotions. You should also be aware of fees. You have to pay for carry-ons and checjed bags, as well as seat assignment.
