New flight to Amsterdam coming to Hamilton airport

Low-cost airline Play announced on Tuesday that Amsterdam has been added to its list of inaugural flights out of Hamilton.
Beginning on June 22, passengers can fly to Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam from John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport for as low as $169.
“We are thrilled to launch our services to Amsterdam and connect more customers to our affordable travel options,” said Birgir Jónsson, CEO of Iceland-based Play.
Jónsson says the company’s mission is to provide low-cost flights and offer more value.
“We aim to give the competition a run for their money with our low prices, providing people in Canada the opportunity to save money on their flights and enjoy more experiences in their destination,” he added.
Play made its arrival in Hamilton known in January when it announced inaugural flights to 26 European destinations, including London, Paris, and Berlin.
Because its aircraft is just over two years old, Play says passengers can enjoy a more “comfortable, safe and reliable” flight.
Travellers do have to pay for upgrades, like in-flight meals, carry-ons, checked bags, and extra legroom.
Since its first flight in June 2021, Play has expanded its fleet from three Airbus A320neo aircraft to six in 2022 and will operate ten Airbus A320/321neo aircraft this year.
The company boasts an 87 per cent on-time flight performance through the first three months of 2023.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
