WOW air has announced plans to add transatlantic flights to its schedule with the launch of a new service to Boston in spring 2014.
WOW air will fly to Boston from from Reykjavik six times a week (daily except Saturdays). Flights to Boston from Reykjavik will depart at 16:30, while the return leaves the US city at 20:10 (all times local).
The airline is keen to promote connecting flights from London Gatwick, which will depart at 12:20 and arrive in Boston via Reykjavik at 18:25. The return flights, departing (as noted) at 20:10 will arrive in London Gatwick via Reykjavik the next day at 10:50 (all times local).
The new route is the airline’s first venture to the US. To accommodate the additional flights, WOW air will operate five new Airbus A320s in 2014, compared to its fleet of four in 2013.
“Our new flights to Boston mark a significant milestone for WOW air,” declared Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW air. “The continued growth of the company since its inception in 2011 has been really exciting to watch and we’re really looking forward to connecting the land of fire and ice with the land of opportunity.”
