WOW announces London Stansted to Reykjavik flights, opening up onward connections to North America

WOW air is to launch a new service between London Stansted and Reykjavik that will open up a range of onward connections to popular North American destinations from its Icelandic hub.

Daily flights from Stansted to the city’s Keflavik International Airport will begin at the end of April 2018, with fares starting from £29.99* one way.

The route will give passengers access to the airline’s extensive North American route network from its Reykjavik hub, including Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami and Montreal.

We are delighted WOW air has chosen to come to London Stansted and become the latest airline to join our growing base of carriers operating from the airport. 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. These new flights will also appeal to both business and leisure passengers from London and East of England as well those visiting the UK from the USA.
Martin Jones, London Stansted’s Commercial Director

WOW air has today also announced new routes to Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis and Cincinnati to add to its growing portfolio of US destinations from Reykjavik. From next Spring the airline will serve a total of 14 destinations in North America which also include Pittsburgh, New York, Toronto, Boston and Washington D.C.

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, helping to make international travel truly a possibility for everyone.
Skúli Mogensen, CEO and Founder of WOW air

Flights from Iceland from Stansted will be serviced by WOW air’s fleet of Airbus A321 aircraft.
