The Icelandic low-cost airline PLAY will start a route between Reykjavik and Gothenburg Landvetter in the spring of next year, which will be the company’s first line to Sweden.
The newly started Icelandic low-cost company PLAY started flying in the summer of 2021 and is now launching a route to Sweden for the first time when it starts flying between Gothenburg and Reykjavik. The route will start on May 20 and will be operated twice a week during the summer, on Mondays and Fridays. Aircraft type will be Airbus A321neo.
“We welcome our new customer and the increased availability to and from Sweden and Gothenburg Landvetter Airport. That a newly started airline like PLAY sees opportunities and chooses to establish itself in Gothenburg is really gratifying and shows how attractive the region is, ”says Anna Strömwall, Airport Director at Gothenburg Landvetter Airport.
The Gothenburg-Reykjavik route was operated by Icelandair until 2018 and was a popular route according to Swedavia. Just over 80 percent of the travelers between Gothenburg and Reykjavik are private travelers with a relatively large proportion visiting relatives and friends. About 65 percent of the travelers are Swedes and 35 percent Icelanders.
