PLAY has announced its acceleration into the U.S. market with new winter routes connecting Orlando International Airport and Berlin, Dublin, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, London, and Paris via Iceland. Despite launching during the pandemic, PLAY has managed to grow quickly, and Florida is an important foothold for PLAY as a global tourist destination.
PLAY will start the Keflavik – Orlando route on September 30, 2022.
PLAY issued this announcement:
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.
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.
