Play, the new Icelandic airline founded from the bankruptcy of budget airline Wow Air, is set to commence services to six destinations in Europe: Alicante, Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Paris, and Tenerife with more destinations to be gradually added next year, including four North American cities.
Wow Air ceased trading in March 2019.
Play will change Wow’s fuschia colour to red.
COO Arnar Már Magnússon said that the colour red was chosen to represent passion as well as Icelandic nature.
The airline has already negotiated slots and service hours with airports in the six cities and has secured a deal on fuel with BP, with a fixed price for six months.
Play will add four more aircraft to its fleet in May next year, two more a year later, and by May 2022 Play plans to operate a total of 10 aircraft.
The airline expects to secure an operating license as soon as funding is completed.
