Iceland's WOW air to begin daily service between US West Coast, Europe

WOW air, a transatlantic airline from Iceland, has reported it plans to offer daily flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Keflavik International Airport (KEF), the company said.

WOW air announced its entry into the US West Coast market in January 2016 with services beginning this past June. Flights from San Francisco to Iceland are available five days a week, with service from Los Angeles scheduled four days a week.

California routes are serviced by Airbus A330-300 aircrafts, the first wide-body planes in the WOW air fleet, which each carry 350 passengers in a single-class configuration. Seat pitch will vary from 30 inches as standard to 34 inches at an additional charge.

WOW air connects 31 destinations across the US and Europe with the Icelandic capital. WOW air´s annual passenger capacity is projected to more than double in 2016 to over 1.8 million, up from approximately 840,000 in 2015.
