  • WOW Air Woos Missourians with Cheap Flights out of St. Louis

An Icelandic airline is expanding its service in North America, and now St. Louis is making their list of stops. How about Cleveland, Cincinnati and Detroit?

And now two airlines make back-to-back announcements that they plan to start transatlantic service in May 2018 - to Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland.

The airline is due to introduce Tampa as its next U.S. destination next month with services due to begin on September 6.

"WOW air is very excited to bring our flight services to four new Midwest destinations", Skuli Mogensen, CEO and founder of WOW, said in the release. The new additions to its flight offerings means the airline will soon provide service from 12 destinations across America. We'll see you on Reykjavik.

In other words, if fares drop below a certain threshold, people who otherwise would not consider traveling to Europe will do so because of the cheap fares. WOW will offer each flight four times per week, its flight schedule shows.WOW will fly 208-seat.

The inaugural flight from St. Louis to Iceland will be held on May 17 of next year, WOW said.

Flights from Cincinnati to Keflavik are available for $99 one-way, including taxes. The A320 is the choice of numerous world's leading airlines and a ideal fit for our short haul flights between Europe and Iceland.

"Our unique opportunity is to use Iceland as a hub".

WOW Air offers flights to locations like London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Dublin, Copenhagen and more at $149. "That's really the key". From St. Louis, WOW will be the only carrier flying to Europe.

Icelandair's CEO Birkir Holm Gudnason said: "Cleveland is the flawless destination for our route network". "We are proud to partner with Detroit Metropolitan Airport to provide the lowest fares possible over the Atlantic to MI travelers".

WOW Air is adding four US cities, including St. Louis, to its European destinations starting in the spring. While its earliest US destinations were focused on the East and West coasts, WOW's four newest cities continue its recent expansion in the interior of the country.

Earlier this year, WOW started seasonal, nonstop service from Pittsburgh International Airport.

Today's addition will help bring the airline's total number of USA destinations to 12 since its successful North American launch at Boston Logan International Airport in March 2015. In Canada, WOW flies from Montreal and Toronto.
