Cheap flights to Europe: Play is offering 25% off fares to Iceland and Europe
To play, a low-cost airline that just made its maiden flight from the United States to Baltimore, will also fly from Boston, New York and Orlando. It offers low-cost, no-frills flights to Europe via Iceland, and you can get those cheap flights and an even bigger discount right now.
Play’s Mother’s Day sale runs from May 4-8 and offers an additional 25% off pricing. A rep says selling means you can end up with a one-way flight to Europe from the USA for as low as $99. However, as with most budget airlines, this price does not include baggage and other equipment that may be included in the price of other airlines.
If you’re heading to Europe, it’s worth remembering that Play, like other Icelandic airlines past and present, offers a free layover in Iceland. It’s not yet available on Play’s website, however. You will therefore need to call and book to take advantage of this offer.
Discounted flights are available from Boston (BOS), Baltimore (BWI) and New York (SWF) to Iceland, Berlin, Gothenburg, Brussels, Liverpool, Stavanger and Trondheim. Of course, it’s not so clear. There are some fine print.
The available flight dates to Iceland from Boston and Baltimore range from May 11 to June 10, then from August 20 to November 13. Departing from Stewart in New York, you can travel to Iceland from August 20 to November 13.
Here are the other flight restrictions shared by Play, which apply to flights departing from Boston, Baltimore and New York.

Prices are attractive, but you always need to know what you’re getting into with a low-cost airline. The extras can add up and the experience is different. (Read our experience on Play’s first flight from the US.) Still, it’s an easy way to save a little on your trip to get a little more from the destination.
