LONDON – Icelandic carrier PLAY has launched ticket sales to Orlando, Florida, with flights expected to begin in September this year.
Using its Airbus A321 Long Range aircraft, Orlando will become the fourth destination in the U.S after:
- Baltimore/Washington DC
- New York
Commenting on the route announcement was Birgir Jonsson, CEO of PLAY:
“With the Airbus A321neo LR, we can reach markets that were not open to PLAY before.”
“We use the newest generation of A320/1neo from Airbus, which is the most sought-after aircraft in the world today because of its benefits and the Long Range-version is a welcome addition”.
“I am convinced that our arrival in Orlando will shake up the Iceland – Florida market.”
“After studying our competitors’ prices on flights to and from Orlando, we are confident we can offer much lower prices on this popular route, which benefits a huge market.”
“That includes the many Icelanders who travel to Florida as well as everyone traveling between Florida and Europe. PLAY is a real low-budget airline that aims to offer the lowest prices.”
“With our operations on this popular route, many more will be able to fly to Florida and experience this wonderful area.”
It remains clear that PLAY is continuing onwards with its expansion into the U.S, and clearly, the demand for such flights are increasing by the day.
