PLAY, a low-cost Icelandic air carrier, began service from the U.S. to Europe in April and has been steadily adding routes since then. The air carrier’s newest route will provide service to Athens, Greece, beginning June 2, 2023.
“We’re thrilled to announce our newest destination is one of the world’s oldest cities,” PLAY explains. “Athens, the capital city of Greece, is often called the cradle of western civilization and the birthplace of democracy. Aside from the numerous world-famous monuments and landmarks such as the Acropolis, the Parthenon, and the Panathenaic, Athens is an exciting and colorful modern-day capital city with a lot going on.”
To help celebrate the addition of Athens as a destination, PLAY is even offering an introductory sale with flights to Athens from $199 one-way, per person.
That fare is only available when booking round-trip flights to Athens via Iceland from Baltimore, Boston, New York, and Washington, D.C. Those flights must be on a Sunday between June 4 and June 18, 2023, and between September 3 and October 15, 2023.
