Edinburgh to the States, via Iceland

EDINBURGH is to become WOW Air’s third UK departure point, and the first in Scotland, for flights to Iceland and North America. Tickets for flights beginning in July are on sale from £39 to Reykjavik and £125 to the US and Canada.

Flights will depart Edinburgh to the airline’s hub in Reykjavik twice a week between July and October. Onward travelling passengers will have a short stop-over before continuing on to one of the airline’s North American destinations: Boston, Washington D.C., Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles, or San Francisco.

Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW Air, said: ‘We’re very pleased to announce Edinburgh as our third UK departure point, given the success we’ve seen with advance bookings on the recently-announced Bristol route and our original route from London. We know that Scottish travellers are an intrepid sort, keen to explore unique and mountainous landscapes, so we hope to open up Iceland to many more Scots with our service.’

A320 aircraft will operate the Edinburgh to Reykjavik flight with single-class A321, and A330-300 aircraft operating the routes between Iceland and North America. WOW air offers a standard seat pitch of 30”, with the option to increase this to 35” on the North American legs of the journey for a small fee.
