Wow Air is to launch a new route to Miami next year, its eighth destination in North America.

The Icelandic carrier will offer a three times-weekly service starting in April 2017, with connections available to European destinations including London Gatwick, Paris CDG, Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Dublin and Copenhagen.

Flights will start from $99 one way between Miami and Iceland, and from $149 one way between Miami and Europe.

Commenting on the new service Skúli Mogensen, CEO and Founder of Wow Air said:

“After receiving such a positive response after our San Francisco, and Los Angeles launches, it was only natural to expand our operations to Miami.

“Not only does this launch give our Southeast American travellers an affordable opportunity to travel abroad, it gives our European travellers access to the beautiful tropical beaches and active nightlife of this great city.”

Wow Air’s other North American routes are: San Francisco, Los Angeles,  Washington DC, New York, Boston, Toronto and Montreal.

Wow Air recently placed an order for four A321 aircraft – its first aircraft order made directly with Airbus.
