PLAY has recently introduced a groundbreaking opportunity for travelers: stopovers in Iceland at no additional cost, allowing them to explore two countries in one journey. This innovative feature enables passengers to transform their layovers into memorable stays in the captivating “Land of Fire and Ice” while traveling to or from over 30 European destinations, including enticing locales such as Barcelona, Split, Croatia, and more. Starting today, travelers can seize the chance to book their first stopover trip or plan a romantic Valentine’s Day getaway with flights to Iceland priced at $99 or flights to nine European destinations at $129.
Birgir Jónsson, the CEO of PLAY, expressed his enthusiasm about this new offering, stating, “PLAY has leveraged Iceland’s strategic location near Europe to provide travelers with convenient flights and budget-friendly fares. Now, with the stopover feature, we’re enhancing the benefits for our passengers. Instead of enduring a brief layover in Iceland, travelers can extend their visit to this bucket-list destination for an extra day or even a week, immersing themselves in everything our homeland has to offer. Extended stopovers are a win-win for both PLAY and our passengers, facilitating exploration at an affordable price.”
Renowned as the go-to choice for low-cost flights between the U.S. and Europe, PLAY serves travelers from Boston, D.C., and New York to Iceland and an expanding array of European destinations. The stopover option enables passengers to prolong their stay in Iceland for up to 10 days, allowing them to savor the island’s delectable cuisine, awe-inspiring experiences, natural wonders, rejuvenating hot springs, and more. Travelers have the flexibility to incorporate a stopover on either leg of their journey or even on both departing and returning flights. This added travel experience is applicable to any PLAY flight, as all routes pass through Iceland en route to or from Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and other exciting destinations.
Moreover, extended stopovers broaden American travelers’ accessibility to prominent vacation spots like Barcelona, Alicante, and others, which were previously constrained by route schedules.
To ignite interest in inaugural stopover trips, PLAY is offering discounted fares on flights to Iceland and nine European destinations from February 1 to February 6. This promotion is ideal for couples seeking a romantic getaway, allowing them to make a memorable gesture without straining their finances. Roundtrip flights to Europe are priced at $129, and with the new stopover option, travel enthusiasts can elongate their journey with a visit to Iceland to witness the Northern Lights, explore the Golden Circle, and indulge in Icelandic spas before or after reaching their final destination.
PLAY’s fare discount includes flights to Iceland for $99 and $129 flights to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Berlin, Dublin, Stockholm, Frankfurt, or Hamburg. The offer is valid from February 1 to February 6, 2024, until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, applicable for one-way flights on roundtrip bookings with the Basic Bundle. Travel dates are between February and May 2024 or September and December 2024.
