WOW air takes over Midwest with new cities and USD 99 flight deals

WOW air, Iceland´s low-cost transatlantic airline, continues its North American growth by offering new flight services from Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW), Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE), Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) to Europe via Keflavik International Airport (KEF) in Iceland, the company said.

The addition of these four cities will increase the number of WOW air destinations in the Midwest to five.

Earlier this year, WOW air began service to Chicago´s O´Hare International Airport (ORD). These four additions will bring the airline´s total number of US destinations to 12 since its successful North American launch at Boston Logan International Airport in March 2015.

Service from Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati and St. Louis to Iceland will be available four days per week with service onwards to WOW air´s European destinations. Flights from the four new destinations to Iceland are available from USD 99* one-way including taxes. Fares to WOW air´s additional locations from the Midwest, including London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Dublin, Copenhagen and more starting at USD 149.

Flights from DTW, CLE, CVG and STL to Iceland will commence in 2018.

Established in November 2011 by Icelandic entrepreneur Skúli Mogensen, the purple airline flies with Airbus A320, Airbus A321 and Airbus A330 models. WOW air boasts one of the world´s youngest fleet, with an average aircraft age of just 2 years.
