Wow air to boost low-cost transatlantic flight options

Icelandic low-cost transatlantic airline Wow air has announced plans to increase the number of flights from London to its hub in Iceland to two per day, as well as increases to its onward long-haul services to California.

From March 27th next year the airline will fly daily from London to Los Angeles and San Francisco, via Reykjavik, making budget travel to California even more accessible for UK holidaymakers.

The year-round services currently operate four times a week to Los Angeles and five times a week to San Francisco.

The airline also flies daily to Boston and Washington DC with new services to New York from November 2016 and to Miami from April 2017. 

Skúli Mogensen, founder, Wow air, said, “Reception towards our new US routes this year has been overwhelmingly positive.

“It is due to this that we are able to put on even more flights and continue realising our aim of changing the landscape of low cost transatlantic travel.

“It’s a very exciting time with lots of growth plans in the pipeline - we look to the future and to expanding our network even further.”
