New Icelandic airline launches bargain US flights from the UK for just £139

A NEW Icelandic airline is offering cheap flights from the UK to the US for as little as £139.

Airline PLAY, which launched earlier this year, is celebrating its inaugural flights to the states in 2022 with the cheap fares which are available for the rest of the month.

The new airline takes the place of WOW Air, the Icelandic airline that offered UK-US fares for as little as £99, which went bust back in 2019.

The bargain flights have launched from today, and can be booked until December 22.

Travelling from London Stansted, current flight routes include Washington and Boston.

Flights to Baltimore/Washington International Airport will launch from April 20 next year, and from May 11 to Boston Logan International Airport.

Tickets start from £139 to Washington and £169 to Boston one way, with a personal item included, although passengers will need to pay for extras such as baggage and legroom.

Travellers will also need to travel via Reykjavik in Iceland, with a short layover at the airport.

“With our reliable and affordable flights, travellers can enjoy their holiday destination rather than overspending on the flight to get there.”

And in the British Airways sale, passengers can bag return flights to New York from £326, and return flights to San Francisco from £343.
