More flights from WOW air

“Soaring demand” has led the Icelandic low-cost transatlantic airline WOW air to announce plans to increase the number of flights from London to its hub in Iceland to two a day while boosting its onward long-haul services to California.

From 27 March next year, the airline will fly daily from London to Los Angeles and San Francisco, via Reykjavik. The year-round services currently operate four times a week to Los Angeles and five times a week to San Francisco. 

WOW Air also flies daily to Boston and Washington DC and is adding new services to New York from next month and to Miami from next April.  

Founder and CEO Skúli Mogensen said: “The reception for 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.”

WOW air flies daily from Gatwick to Reykjavik with twice-daily flights on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays.
