PLAY is an Icelandic low-cost airline, launched after WOW Air ceased operations in March 2019. Its entrance brings competition to the national carrier, Icelandair. The airline will be focusing on providing services between Iceland and Europe.

PLAY will be operating with a fleet of narrowbody aircraft, namely the Airbus A320 family aircraft. Flights will be operated out of Keflavik Airport to destinations in Spain, Germany, Denmark and the United Kingdom. Initially, London Stansted will be the airline’s first ever destination.
