WOW air plans to increase the number of flights from London to its hub in Iceland to two per day, as well as increases to its onward long-haul services to California.
From 27 March 2017, the airline will fly daily from London to Los Angeles and San Francisco, via Reykjavik (KEF). The year-round services currently operate four times a week to Los Angeles and five times a week to San Francisco. WOW air also flies daily to Boston and Washington DC with new services to New York set to begin in November 2016 and to Miami from April 2017.
Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW air commented, “Reception towards our new US routes this year has been overwhelmingly positive. It is due to this that we are able to put on even more flights and continue realising our aim of changing the landscape of low-cost transatlantic travel. It’s a very exciting time with lots of growth plans in the pipeline. We look to the future and to expanding our network even further.”
California routes are operated with Airbus A330-300s, the first widebody aircraft in the WOW air fleet, each carrying 350 passengers in a single-class configuration.
