It’s only a matter of time before flight prices shoot up, so if you’re after a European getaway, now is the time to go after what you want. An Icelandic airline called PLAY is helping make it happen.

The low-budget airline wants you to “pay less, play more,” and is offering flights to amazing destinations like Paris, Copenhagen, Dublin, Berlin, Gothenburg, and London starting at just $129 round trip from Orlando International Airport (and yes, that includes all taxes and fees). Ticket sales for seasonal flights between September 2022 and April 2023 are available now.

“The Orlando market appealed to PLAY because there is strong demand for flights to Orlando from Iceland and Europe, with travelers going to the state for golf trips, to rent homes, and to visit parks and attractions,” PLAY Airlines CEO Birgir Jónsson tells Matador. “Prices in the Orlando market are generally high, and PLAY will offer the lowest prices between Florida and Europe. Floridian travelers will be able to visit top European destinations and travelers flying to or from Orlando International Airport will have quick access to destinations in Florida via South Florida’s high-speed train service, Brightline.”

If you’re looking for your next vacation, you’re not alone. Recent data shows that almost two-thirds of Americans are planning their next vacations, and many are branching out internationally. Jónsson also noted the winter season is the perfect trade-off. European travelers can escape the cold weather and arrive in sunny Florida, while American travelers can visit Europe’s winter festivals and markets.

To take advantage of this great deal, all you have to do is head to the PLAY website and be sure to book by February 27. This special deal is only available for the new flights out of Orlando, so you may need a connecting flight from your home airport to get you there.
