Wow Air Announces €65 flights from Ireland to the USA

To mark the airline’s fifth year in business, Wow Air is offering flights from Ireland to the USA from €65 one way, including taxes and charges, from today (Thursday 1st June) for travel throughout June.

The offer is available on flights from Dublin Airport and Cork Airport, via Reykjavik, to Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, New York, Pittsburgh, Montreal, and Toronto.

Founded in 2011 by Icelandic entrepreneur Skúli Mogensen, Wow Air now connects 32 destinations across Europe and the USA with the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik.

The airline became the first to operate direct scheduled flights between Ireland and Iceland when it began operating the service in June 2015. It now connects Ireland to 10 US destinations via Reykjavik.

Wow Air flies Dublin to Reykjavik five times weekly, increasing to daily in peak summer times, and Cork to Reykjavik three times a week, increasing to four flights a week during peak summer times. Flights connect passengers to 10 North America destinations via Reykjavik including New York, Boston, Washington DC, Toronto, Montreal, Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, with routes to Chicago and Pittsburgh starting in summer 2017.

Skúli Mogensen, Chief Executive, said: “We are really excited to celebrate our fifth anniversary this year. We are delighted to share our great success with our Irish passengers by offering the best prices ever seen for travel across the Atlantic. This is a great opportunity to take a weekend break or tick a bucket list destination off the list.

“Since launching almost two years ago, we are pleased with the success of our Irish routes with many Irish passengers visiting Iceland and connecting to the USA through Reykjavik. Equally, Dublin and Cork have also become popular destinations for the Icelandic people, with many taking weekend breaks in Ireland.”
