Wow Air set to shake up London-Miami route
Wow Air, Iceland’s only low cost airline, has announced a new service from the UK to Miami beginning in April 2017, with fares starting from £119 one way.
Flights will depart from London Gatwick to Miami via Reykjavik. The inaugural service to Miami International Airport (MIA) will depart on 5 April 2017, the service operating three times per week year round. Tickets for the new route are on sale now.
Wow Air’s expansion to Miami builds upon the successful launch of transatlantic services to Montreal, Washington D.C, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston and New York from both London Gatwick.
Skúli Mogensen, CEO of Wow Air, said: “Having lived in Miami myself, I understand the appeal for many UK and European travellers, so I am thrilled to add this global and energetic city to our ever growing list of North-American destinations.
“With our New York service commencing in November and now Miami only a few months later, we are thrilled to continue our mission to offer the lowest fares across the Atlantic.”
The flights from Reykjavik to Miami will be serviced by Wow Air’s fleet of long-range Airbus A330-300 aircraft. The wide-bodied planes fly with a single-class configuration, with a capacity of 350 passengers and a seat pitch varying from 30-34 inches.
