PLAY Airlines has announced plans to launch a new service between Glasgow and Iceland beginning Friday 26 May.

With flights scheduled four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, Glasgow will now be fully connected to PLAY's North American routes.  

PLAY currently operates flights to Boston, Washington DC, Baltimore, and New York in the United States, as well as Toronto in Canada.

Passengers can enjoy a comfortable journey on the Airbus A320neo with 180 seats, and this summer, PLAY's fleet will consist of 10 Airbus A320/321neo, with an average age of approximately 2.5 years. 

PLAY's motto is "Pay less, PLAY more," which means that customers can enjoy a cost-effective flight and have more to spend on their destination's fun activities. Furthermore, with a nearly 90% on-time performance rate in 2022, PLAY prioritizes passenger safety, providing a safe, reliable, and comfortable journey that doesn't break the bank. 

CEO Birgir Jรณnsson: "As we continue to expand our network, PLAY is proud to announce the addition of Glasgow to our growing list of destinations. With our focus on affordability and convenience, passengers can experience our on-time performance and safe, reliable service while exploring Scotland's vibrant city. We are excited to bring a new travel option to passengers, connecting them directly to and from Keflavik to Glasgow and to and from our routes across North America." 

Christopher Tibbett, Group Head of Airline Relations and Marketing for Glasgow Airport, said: "Today’s announcement from PLAY is very welcome news and we look forward to working with them on this new service to Keflavik Airport, the gateway to Reykjavik.

"Air links between Scotland and this Nordic island nation go back decades thanks to its enduring popularity with travellers keen to take in the country’s stunning scenery and magnificent culture.

"As well as being a must-see destination in its own right, Iceland also offers fantastic and convenient connectivity to a number of popular North American destinations."
