New airline to provide low-cost flights from Ireland to Iceland
Fancy seeing the Northern Lights next year?
A new low-cost airline in Ireland has added Dublin to their list of destinations for next summer.
PLAY has added Dublin along with Madrid and Brussels to their schedule for flights beginning at the end of April.
The new additions have increased their possible destinations to 23, including Lisbon, Bologna, Stuttgart, and Prague.
PLAY has also added plans to fly to the east coast of America next spring, with Dublin as a potential stopover destination.
Flights to the capital of Reykjavik from Dublin take around two and a half hours. From the city, visitors can see lava fields, glaciers, and waterfalls.
“It’s really enjoyable to add more destinations in Europe that will strengthen our route schedule," said CEO of Play, Birgir Jónsson.
"I’m sure that the people of Dublin, Brussels and Madrid will be thrilled learning that they now have more options getting to Iceland and over the Atlantic to North America.
"This expansion is part of a bigger transatlantic plan that we look forward to rolling out in the next few months.”
Managing Director of Dublin Airport, Vincent Harrison shared his enthusiasm for the new route coming to the airport.
“We welcome today’s news that Dublin Airport will enjoy increased connectivity to and from Iceland next summer with PLAY," he said.
"The increased access to and from Reykjavik shows how attractive the tourism opportunities are at both ends of this attractive new route."
PLAY plans to run three flights to Dublin and back a week starting April 2022.
