L3Harris signs agreement with PLAY, Iceland’s Newest Airline, to train in London Training Center

PLAY, Europe’s newest low-cost airline, has selected L3Harris Technologies to provide pilot training services as the airline hopes to grow its operations.

L3Harris will provide a full range of Airbus A320 pilot training services at the L3Harris London Training Centre. This training will support PLAY and its Airbus A320 fleet. The airline currently operates three Airbus A321 NEO aircraft leased from AerCap, but plans to expand the fleet with additional Airbus A320 and A321NX aircraft. This month PLAY signed an agreement with GECAS, a major international aircraft lessor for three A320neo and one A321NX narrowbody aircraft. The aircraft is scheduled to be delivered between autumn 2022 and spring 2023. PLAY serves ten destinations across seven countries in Europe and will start operations in North-America in spring 2022.

“This agreement is a testament to the quality of our full pilot training expertise,” said Alan Crawford, President, Commercial Aviation at L3Harris. “We thrive when supporting international airlines at different stages of their growth journey. This is another example of L3Harris’ commitment to supporting the commercial aviation industry as it recovers from a tough year.”

Captain Halldor Gudfinnsson, PLAY’s Director of Training, added: “As an ambitious airline, it is essential we have the highest quality training to support our pilots. That is why we are excited to be able to work with L3Harris’ best in class simulators. The success of this agreement is important to us as we begin to grow our operations.”
