PLAY Signs Agreement for 2 A320neo Aircraft with China Aircraft Leasing



Icelandic airline PLAY signed an agreement with China Aircraft Leasing for two new A320neo aircraft. The aircraft will be delivered to PLAY next week and will be fitted and painted as per PLAY’s specifications.

The aircraft will arrive in Iceland in March 2022 in time for the change to a hub-and-spoke business model. The aircraft are new and will be delivered directly from Airbus. PLAY signed a letter of intent for these aircraft previously.

In September, PLAY signed an agreement with GECAS for three A320neo and one A321NX narrowbody aircraft. The aircraft are scheduled to be delivered between autumn 2022 and spring 2023.

“We are delighted to add additional aircraft to the PLAY fleet. We are consciously including environmental variables in our decision making and the addition of these fuel-efficient aircraft will help us meet our growth objectives as we look forward to the opportunities ahead,” Birgir Jónsson, CEO of PLAY, said.
