Iceland at low fares: flights with PLAY-Airlines from Düsseldorf to Reykjavik three times a week and on to the USA

 "Pay less, PLAY more" is the motto for all travel enthusiasts from Düsseldorf this summer. Since the young Icelandic airline PLAY started operations in June 2021, the company has been on a rapid growth course.

To date, the airline flies to around 33 destinations from Reykjavik and from June 2023 Düsseldorf International Airport will also be on the flight schedule to the Arctic Circle.

Iceland - A country full of breathtaking contrasts

From 8th June to 28th October 2023, Iceland's magical world awaits travellers with direct flights from Düsseldorf available three times a week - on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and at an affordable price. One-way flights to Reykjavik start at only 79 euros per person, with all flights operated by the Airbus A320neo, offering a comfortable flying experience with around 180 seats and noiseless engines.

Travellers will arrive at Keflavík International Airport in Reykjavik, from where they can immediately explore the fascinating contrasts of Iceland within a few minutes drive. The northernmost city in the world is a vibrant and colourful atmosphere that stands in stark contrast to the dramatic natural landscapes, including whale songs and the northern lights. Sleepy harbours on stunning coastlines, black lava fields, steaming geysers, waterfalls, hot springs in blue lagoons, fascinating mountain ranges, glaciers, and volcanoes - all of these make up the stunning Icelandic landscape.

Uncomplicated connections – from the Northern Lights to North America
