Icelandic airline Play has unveiled its crew uniforms and aircraft livery, ahead of the launch of flights to seven European destinations including London Stansted later this month.
The start-up carrier posted photographs on its Facebook page of its first 192-seat A321neo being painted in a striking red and white livery.
The aircraft was previously operated by Mexican airline Interjet, which suspended flights late last year. Two further A321 neos are set to join Play’s fleet next month.
Plans for the new Icelandic low-cost carrier were first unveiled in 2019, following the collapse of Wow Air.
Meanwhile the carrier has also unveiled the uniform range for its crew members, describing it as “a fresh take on what is usually a very traditional line of clothing”.
Choices include unisex blazers and sweatshirts, as well as trainers and puffer jackets. In a press release Play said:
“Forget running around in high heels – comfortable sneakers are the way to go. Instructions regarding hair, make up, tattoos and nail polish are gone. The uniforms are not gender specific, and our crew can pick whatever works for them from a varied selection of outfits. As if that wasn’t enough, they also manage to look simply amazing!”
Play is set to launch four flights per week between Reykjavik and London Stansted on June 24, as well as routes to Alicante, Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris CDG and Tenerife South over the coming weeks.
