WOW air offers £99 fares on new route from London Stansted to JFK
WOW air is offering fares from London Stansted to New York for less than the cost of the taxes – essentially paying for passengers to fly – to celebrate a new service to the Big Apple’s JFK International Airport.
The low-cost airline is bringing back their £99 fares to mark the occasion, with the fares now on sale for the new route, via Reykjavik, beginning April 2018. Due to the UK having the highest taxes on airfares in the world, the airline’s £99 offering is £24 less than the cost of getting every passenger on their way.
We are proud to constantly be lowering fares across the Atlantic, enabling more people to fly in our brand new aircraft and to experience the world. Air Passenger Duty in the UK is one of the highest in the world and we would love to change this. These low fares make a statement and allow our passengers to fly affordably.
WOW air’s new service to New York JFK is great news for Stansted passengers looking to head to the Big Apple, offering not only fantastic value fares but quick and efficient connection times, and adds to the extensive range of North American destinations already on offer via its hub in Reykjavik.
This is in addition to the WOW air Stopover offer that allows passengers to take a few days in Iceland before carrying on with their journey to the States or Canada.
Already operating a route to New York‘s Newark Liberty International Airport, the airline also currently offers routes to Chicago, Pittsburgh, Miami, Toronto, Boston, Montreal, Washington D.C. and Californian destinations Los Angeles and San Francisco. The airline announced new routes earlier this year to Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis and Cincinnati commencing April 2018, which link up with its new Stansted service.
At the tail end of May, the airline will also be increasing the frequency of its daily service to Newark, bringing the total number of flights to 13 per week from 29 May 2018.
The daily schedule to and from Reykjavik will be:
KEF – JFK 21:10 – 03:25 UTC
JFK – KEF 04:40 – 10:45 UTC
