By Monday, 13 February 2023 09:28

Play doubles in Italy. A year after its Bologna debut, the Icelandic low-cost airline adds its second Italian destination, Venice, which will operate as a seasonal flight throughout the summer. 

Bologna was one of the most popular 2022 destinations

The Reykjavik Keflavik-Venice flights will take off on 29 June operating twice weekly, on Thursdays and Sundays, until next 1 October.  Inaugurated at the beginning of June 2022, the route to Bologna has produced excellent results: “Bologna was one of Fly Play's most popular destinations in 2022,” explains a note from the carrier. 

“Wherever Play goes, ticket prices go down”

“As Bologna had such high demand, we decided to add another Italian destination to our network, - says Play’s CEO Birgir Jónsson. - Wherever Play goes, ticket prices go down, so by adding a destination in Italy, more people will be able to enjoy affordable air travel, in line with our mission.'

Play to operate 77% more capacity next summer

The company operated its first flight in 2021 with a fleet of Airbus A320neo and A321neo from Reykjavik's Keflavik Airport to Europe and North America, offering low-cost transatlantic connections via Iceland. Data compiled by the carrier shows that in January 30% of Play's passengers were travelling from Iceland, 37% were going to Iceland, and 32% were on connecting flights. Play expects to operate 77% more capacity next summer and plans to open a fifth North American destination, Hamilton in Canada.
