The staff of PLAY consists of people with a wide range of experience from the aviation industry from airlines such as WOW air and Air Atlanta. The CEO of PLAY is Arnar Már Magnusson.

PLAY flies with Airbus A321 aircraft (targeting both passenger and freight operations for some 200 passengers per flight) and will serve destinations across Europe. As of summer of 2020, the fleet will consist of six aircraft expanding to ten within three years. Plans are to add destinations in North America in spring 2020.
