Your bucket list dream could become a reality once you hear about this travel deal! Low-cost Icelandic airline, PLAY, is offering flights from New York to Iceland for less than $300 round trip.
Think about it: wake up in NYC tomorrow and in about five hours arrive in Iceland. Plus, there’s no better time than now to start planning a trip because the Northern Lights are most visible from late September through March/April. Travel tip: the Northern Lights are most active during the autumn (September) and spring equinox (March).
Beyond the Northern Lights, you can’t make a trip to Iceland without checking out the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa within a lava field. Supposedly, its water, composed of silica, algae, and mineral salt, has been known to have healing properties that can aid with eczema, acne, and more.
Available flights are departing from New York Stewart International Airport to Reykjavík–Keflavík Airport.
PLAY is a fairly new airline, founded in 2019. It’s mission is to bring travelers on-time performance, simplicity, happiness, low prices, and safety.
In addition to Iceland, the airline serves other routes from New York to cities like Dublin, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Berlin, Athens, Barcelona and more. All flights traveling from North America to Europe make a stop in Iceland.
Low-cost airlines have been booming in the past few years, becoming a popular choice for middle-class travelers. Reports show that by 2030, the low-cost airline industry is projected to reach $440.46 billion.
