The airline company low cost Play will launch a new link in December between Reykjavík And Frankfurthis fourth destination in Germany.

From December 14, 2023, the Icelandic low-cost flight specialist will offer “four to five flights per week” between its base in Reykjavik-Keflavik and the airport of Frankfurt, operated by Airbus A320neo with 180 seats. Departures are scheduled at 5:50 a.m. to arrive at 10:40 a.m., with return flights leaving the first German airport at 11:40 a.m. to land at 2:25 p.m.

Play will compete with Icelandair and Lufthansa on this route, which will be in addition to those already offered to Berlin (all year), Dusseldorf And Hamburg.

Frankfurt will thus have “direct connectivity to PLAY destinations in North America, which are Boston, Baltimore, New York and Washington DC in the United States as well as Toronto in Canada”, underlines a press release.

We are delighted to be able to add more destinations to our transatlantic network at a time when demand in North America for flights to Europe is high. Passenger revenues from North America are much higher than last year, so now is the perfect time to add Frankfurt as a destination. With ten aircraft in our fleet, which is now the youngest and most modern fleet in Europe, we are in an excellent position to expand our route network and continue to offer competitive prices to passengers. said Birgir Jónsson, CEO of PLAY.
