Iceland’s Play Airlines is ready to stretch the legs on its A321LR fleet. The carrier will offer service between its Keflavik hub and Orlando, Florida starting this winter.
Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, NY could end the year with a pair of international airlines as Iceland’s PLAY announces plans to operate this summer. That’s a huge boost for the NYC alternate.
Travelers from Baltimore and Boston now have a new option to Europe. Iceland’s PLAY intends to launch both markets in Spring 2022, connecting the US to Europe via its hub at Keflavik.
A year has passed since the company initially planned to start selling seats, enough time to question whether launching a new airline right now is really a smart choice. But Iceland’s PLAY secured access to at least two London-area airports should its operations launch in Summer 2021, suggesting that the company is still pushing forward.
A new low cost carrier is set to fly in Iceland. PLAY airlines intends to launch sales before the end of the year, connecting passengers between Keflavik and European destinations. The company expects to expand to North American destinations in Spring 2020, using Iceland as a hub to connect passengers between the two continents.
As detials on the new WOW Air plans emerge the business model remains an interesting proposition. With a heavy focus on cargo in a softening market and premium passenger experiences with low fares it is unclear how this company will truly deliver for its investors.
What’s next for bankrupt WOW Air? No one really knows, though maybe the team that just bought most of its assets has a plan.
WOW Air is dead. Completely dead. The planes are mostly off flying for other airlines while the true financial impact of the collapse remains u der debate. And yet. Perhaps there is a chance for another life for the flashy, LCC after all?
WOW Air is no more. After multiple failed attempts to secure additional funding to continue operations the Icelandic LCC formally ceased operations Thursday morning.
The future outlook for Icelandic LCC upstart WOW Air is more bleak than ever. No one wants to touch the operation, it would seem.
