PLAY has continued with its model of expanding quickly with the announcement of four new destinations.

PLAY has revealed Danish cities of Aarhus, Aalborg and Billund have been added to the network. Meanwhile, for Germany, Düsseldorf will be added to their route portfolio from the midway point of 2023.

The airline’s biggest market is Paris Charles De Gaulle in France, with January 2023 27 bookable flights offering 5,184 seats. While on the same amount of bookable flights, London Stansted comes in second place thanks to 4,986 seats.

We have long dreamed of reaching the large number of Icelanders living in Denmark. 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.

PLAY’s expansion into Denmark will mean a lot to the large group of people located in the cities.
