PLAY offers stopovers in Iceland at no additional cost

PLAY, a low-cost Icelandic airline operating flights between North America and Europe, now offers stopover in Iceland for no additional cost, enabling travelers to visit two countries in one trip. Travelers can now book their stopover themselves on PLAY airlines’ website 

The stopovers take advantage of the airline’s hub-and-spoke model, with all flights connecting through Iceland. PLAY’s stopovers will enable passengers to stay up to 10 days in Iceland to experience the island’s incredible natural wonders including waterfalls, geysers, hot springs, glaciers and Northern lights. 

“PLAY has taken advantage of Iceland’s location near Europe to bring travelers convenient flights and affordable fares, and now the stopover feature brings even more benefits to our passengers. Rather than having a few hours layover in Iceland, travelers can make a stop at this bucket-list destination for an extra day or week to experience everything our home country has to offer. Long stayovers are a win-win for both us and our passengers to enable exploration at a low price,” said PLAY CEO Birgir Jónsson.

PLAY airlines had its first flight in June 2021 and operates a modern fleet of 10 Airbus A320/321neo´s where the average age of the aircraft is little over two years. 

In North America, PLAY operates flights to Baltimore, Boston, New York and Washington DC in the United States and Toronto in Canada. PLAY operates more than 30 European destinations, including Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Copenhagen, Barcelona and Athens. 

Last year, PLAY´s crew was voted the best by the readers of USA Today 10Best and recognized as the top low-cost airline in Northern Europe, according to the prestigious World Airline Awards, which are based on customer satisfaction. 

PLAY offers competitive prices in all its markets and strives to make travel more affordable. PLAY emphasizes operational excellence and is proud of an impressive 83% on-time performance in 2023. By choosing PLAY, passengers will have a safe and reliable journey and will spend less on their flight ticket, which means that they can spend more on their destination. Or to put it simply: Pay less, PLAY more!
