The airline, which launched last year following the demise of WOW Air, will have twice-weekly flights available between November 4 and April 10, 2023, making it a great choice for Brits planning on visiting Disney World during the school holidays.

Birgir Jónsson, CEO of PLAY, said: "We look forward to welcoming passengers from the north west region and beyond to help them on their journey to Iceland or to the US.
"We are a no-frills airline, but with our reliable and affordable flights, PLAY's passengers can spend their hard earned money in their holiday destination, rather than on getting there."
