The Icelandic low-cost carrier WOW Air announced today that they will be launching flights between Reykjavik and America’s most populated metro area, New York City.

WOW Air will begin flying from Reykjavik-Keflavik Airport to Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey on Nov. 25. They will offer daily flights  to up to 21 other European destinations.

Skúli Mogensen, CEO of WOW air, said: “Having announced new routes to Canada and California plus our two new UK routes, the addition of New York is a reflection of our determination to keeping the momentum going and to continue changing the landscape of transatlantic travel.

“We know that New York is a desirable destination for many travellers from the UK and Europe, so it’s exciting to be able to add this vibrant, global city to our portfolio of North American destinations, making it even more accessible to those on a budget.”

WOW Air started service to North America with the addition of Baltimore-Washington Airport and Boston airport in early 2015 and have added 4 new North-American destinations since then. The airline now also flies to San Francisco and Los Angeles in the US and Toronto and Montreal in Canada, which were all inaugurated in the past 2 months. These destinations are served with their Airbus A321’s and their new A330 widebodies.



Newark will initially be served with their Airbus A321, but will be upgraded in seasons when demand peaks. The current published schedule, courtesy of airlineroute.
