It’s about time that Iceland got itself a low-cost airline. With its gorgeous glaciers, stunning fjords, warm springs and abundance of amazing natural sights to see, traveling to Iceland is on plenty of people’s bucket lists. You might think that its rather isolated location would make it an expensive destination, but not anymore!
This morning the inaugural flight of the first PLAY airlines Dublin to Iceland line left the runway and you yourself could board one for just €75 one way. The land of ice and fire is calling, with plenty of incredible attractions to experience such as the Blue Lagoon, Iceland’s most famous spa.
You could go whale watching or travel to the fjords. Plus, Reykjavik itself is an incredible place to visit. If you want nightlife, great restaurants, friendly people and gorgeous buildings then you’ll find it all in Reykjavik. We’re suddenly; finding ourselves wishing that a Secret Reykjavik existed.
Tickets are bookable on the PLAY website and the flights from Dublin to Reykjavik take under 3 hours, which is the ideal amount of time to take a nap.
Reykjavik airport is just 45 minutes from the actual city so you won’t be travelling for long once you arrive if your final destination is the city itself. However, if you’d like to head on to the US then you’ll have a two-hour layover at Reykjavik airport. So, you can grab some food, freshen up, maybe chat with some friendly Icelanders and then arrive at Baltimore/Washington just over seven hours after you departed from Dublin.
For just €252 one way you could be headed to the states, and if you want to know what to do once you land in Washington/Baltimore then just head over to our friends at Secret Baltimore and Secret DC. Bon voyage!
