On Thursday (January 5, 2023), PLAY announced a significant expansion in Denmark with new service to Aarhus, Aalborg and Billund. Service to Aalborg will operate twice weekly from June 10th, while Aarhus flights will operate twice weekly starting June 12th. Twice weekly service to Billund, home of LEGO, will commence on June 15, 2023. Additionally, the carrier will launch three weekly flights to Düsseldorf on June 8, 2023, expanding the carrier’s German network to three destinations, complementing existing service to Berlin and Hamburg.

In Thursday’s announcement, PLAY’s CEO, Birgir Jónsson, said,

“We have long dreamed of reaching the large number of Icelanders living in Denmark, and with these three new destinations we believe this will greatly improve our services. With these additions to the network, PLAY will have six destinations in Scandinavia next summer, two in Sweden and four in Denmark. These three new destinations in Denmark are really exciting – not only am I convinced that Icelanders will use these routes a lot, but also those who want to connect to North America in a cheap and convenient way. At the same time, it has rarely been cheaper for Icelanders to travel to Denmark and enjoy the Danish summer or visit relatives – half of the Icelanders in Denmark live in the western part of the country. These are truly great news for a big group of people.”

Founded in 2019 by Arnar Magnússon and launched in June 2021, PLAY is a new Iceland-based low-cost carrier (LCC) which operates flights between Iceland and Europe, as well as to North America. The carrier’s core motto is ‘pay Less PLAY more’, meaning that the airline’s customers spend less on airfare and more while enjoying their holiday destination. PLAY’s fleet of Airbus A320neos and A321neos currently connect customers to around 30 European and U.S. destinations. In 2023, Play will expand their fleet of Airbus A320/321neos to 10 aircraft.
