New Route of the Day (3 April 2023): PLAY between Reykjavik and Warsaw WAW


PLAY (IATA code OG) launched a new seasonal service between Reykjavik and Warsaw WAW on Monday 3 April as it continues to expand operations this summer with a total of twelve new routes. The Icelandic carrier will maintain the 2-weekly 2,815-kilometre service on Mondays and Fridays, with its A320neo aircraft. The LCC will compete directly against Wizz Air’s 5-weekly flights between the two airports.

The outbound service, operating as OG504, departs Reykjavik at 14:50 local time, arriving in Warsaw at 20:55 local time. The inbound flight, OG505, takes off from the Polish capital at 21:55 local time, arriving in Reykjavik at 00:15 the following day.

What they said

Birgir Jonsson, the CEO of PLAY, said: “There are many links between Poland and Iceland. What’s more, a lot of Poles live in Iceland. Icelanders who travelled to Poland for tourism, whom I’ve talked to, have very fond memories. Therefore, Warsaw is a good addition to our route network.”
