Ultra-low-cost transatlantic airline offers flights from California to Iceland

WOW Air, the ultra-low-cost transatlantic airline from Iceland, will now offer daily flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Keflavik International Airport (KEF), making it even easier to travel to Europe from the West Coast.

“We saw a great response to our new routes in Calfiornia this summer and are excited to begin daily flights from the West Coast to Europe beginning next Spring,” said Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW Air. “WOW air is dedicated to providing customers with an easy and affordable way to travel, and continue to do so by offering low-fares and high-performance.”

WOW Air announced its entry into the U.S. West Coast market in January 2016 with services beginning this past June. Currently, flights from San Francisco to Iceland are available five days a week, with service from Los Angeles scheduled four days a week.

California routes are serviced by Airbus A330-300 aircrafts, which each carry 350 passengers in a single-class configuration.

Launched in November 2011, WOW Air now connects 31 destinations across the U.S. and Europe with the Icelandic capital. WOW air’s annual passenger capacity is projected to more than double in 2016 to over 1.8 million, up from approximately 840,000 in 2015.
