Iceland’s Wow Air is to introduce a new route from Stansted to Reykjavik alongside the addition of four new destinations in the US.
The daily flights from Stansted will start on April 25, 2018 and will Wow’s fourth route from the UK – the airline already operates from Gatwick, Edinburgh and Bristol.
Wow will also be introducing four new US routes from Reykjavik for summer 2018 - Detroit on April 26, Cleveland on May 4, Cincinnati on May 10 and St. Louis on May 17. The new routes will take the total number of US destinations served by Wow up to 12.
Skuli Mogensen, Wow’s chief executive and founder, said: “It’s a big day for Wow air as we launch flights from Stansted, our second London airport, plus services to these four new US Midwest destinations.
“We are proud of our growth over the last two years and will continue to work tirelessly to provide the lowest fares possible to connect the UK to North America.”
Martin Jones, Stansted’s commercial director, added: “Reykjavik is a fantastic city and I’m sure it will prove to be a very popular destination in its own right but with the added benefit of opening up the airline’s extensive North American route network from its Icelandic hub, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco and Montreal.”
