Play Airlines will offer cheap flights to Europe
This Icelandic airline offers cheap flights to Europe, making budget travel easier than ever.
Play Airlines, Iceland’s low-cost carrier, recently announced plans to establish a terminal at Dulles International Airport near Washington, DC, as reported by travel website The dot guy.
From April 2023, Play Airlines flights from DC will connect to the carrier’s base at Keflavik International Airport in Reykjavik, Iceland. After which, passengers can be transferred from Reykjavik to other major cities in Europe.
According The dot guyPlay Airlines began operations in 2021 with flights to Stansted Airport in London. Then they added more routes to Europe and new routes last summer to Logan International Airport in Boston and Thurgood Marshall International Airport in Baltimore/Washington.
The dot guy mentions that to subsidize their low-cost flight services, Play Airlines charges passengers for secondary amenities such as checked baggage, meals, and assigned seats. Unbundled airfare prices for the new DC route start at just $99 each way.
More affordable flights to Europe
Play Airlines uses Airbus A320neo and A321neo aircraft, providing a comfortable flight experience with a generous amount of leg room for a low-cost carrier, according to an opinion of The dot guy. Whereas The dot guy mentions that there is no Wi-Fi or in-flight entertainment, and that passengers have to pay for meals, Play Airlines certainly makes overseas travel more affordable.
According The dot guy, Play Airlines will be the first low-cost airline for flights between DC and Europe. Tickets for direct flights between DC and Europe are known to be expensive. However, the addition of Play is prompting other airlines in Dulles to lower ticket prices for direct flights.
In 2023, a trip to Europe could be more affordable than ever, so now is a good time to start planning your next vacation!
