PLAY launches route between Baltimore/Washington and Reykjavik
PLAY Airlines has commenced new international service between Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and Keflavik International Airport. BWI is the first North American destination for PLAY, with the nonstop route operated daily. The airline will also launch daily services to Boston in May and to New York in June.
“We have been looking forward to this day for a long time and we are just ecstatic with joy now it’s finally here,” said Birgir Jónsson, CEO PLAY. “The transatlantic flights will be the main focus in PLAY’s operations and it was a huge project to establish a connection in a new continent. But now we see the fruits of our labour, a well-made, reliable and ambitious flight plan. We already feel a great interest from travellers and I am really astonished to witness the resilience that my colleagues at PLAY possess. It is because of them we can celebrate this milestone in our company’s history and we look forward to exciting times.”
The carrier is utilising A320neo aircraft for the new service between BWI Marshall and Iceland.
“We welcome PLAY and celebrate this new international service, which marks another important milestone as we continue to recover from the pandemic,” said Ricky Smith, Executive Director, BWI Marshall Airport. “The addition of PLAY enhances our international offerings and will provide more low fare options for our passengers.”
