Icelandic startup airline PLAY will receive its first aircraft – Airbus A320neo – at the beginning of June. Two more aircraft will follow in July.
In the meantime, PLAY pilots are completing simulator training in the UK in preparation for the first passenger flight, which is planned for June 24th. The airline that intends to position itself as a low-cost carrier has already confirmed its initial destinations, including Paris, London, Copenhagen, Tenerife, and Alicante. However, so far, it is unclear whether it will obtain permission to operate scheduled flights to the US.
All three aircraft joining PLAY are designed to carry 220 passengers, but the planes in PLAY’s fleet will transport less than 200 passengers to provide extra comfort to its passengers.
