WOW air has begun operating seasonal twice-weekly flights between Edinburgh Airport and the carrier’s Reykjavik hub on Sundays and Wednesdays.
The flights will take place from July to October, giving passengers the chance to travel onwards from Reykjavik to one of WOW air’s North American destinations (Boston, Washington DC, Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles, or San Francisco).
The Edinburgh–Reykjavik flights are being operated by an A320 aircraft, with single-class A321 and A330 aircraft operating the connecting routes between Iceland and North America.
Skúli Mogensen (pictured), founder and CEO of WOW air, remarked, “It’s an extremely proud moment to see the first WOW air plane set off from the runaway at Edinburgh Airport. As our third departure point in the UK, the commencement of this route signifies our continued growth in Britain and our aim to improve accessibility between the two isles.”
“WOW air are a very welcome new airline to Edinburgh Airport; they have rightly recognised the increasing demand for connectivity to and from Scotland,” added Gordon Dewar, CEO of Edinburgh Airport. “This news further bolsters Edinburgh Airport’s position as the leader for business and tourism connectivity between Scotland and international destinations.”
