Icelandic carrier PLAY is adding Scotland to its network, with plans to launch a Glasgow International Airport to Keflavík Airport
The route will commence its Keflavík to Glasgow service on 26th May 2023. They will operate four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays between the two cities. With the flight, it will allow passengers to connect 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.
In terms of aircraft, PLAY will deploy an Airbus A320neo in a typical 3-3 configuration, with 180 seats available. The airlines will consist of 10 Airbus A320/321neo, with an average age of approximately 2.5 years by the time the summer comes (at the time of writing, they have five A320neo and three A321neo in service).
CEO Birgir Jónsson:
“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.”
Growing for Summer 2023
PLAY is growing for its summer 2023 operation, adding Glasgow, Toronto-Hamilton, Washington Dulles, Allborg, Aahus, Athens, Buillund, Dusselrof, Hamburg, Porto, Stockholm, Venice and Warsaw-Chopin to its network – either permanently or on a seasonable basis.
With 10 aircraft in its fleet, it is going to be a tight operation as it shuttles people in and out of its Keflavík hub, whilst ensuring that passengers are flowing between North America and Europe.
For PLAY, it’s going to be a busy summer for the growing airline.
