WOW Air Offers $99 Flights from San Francisco and Los Angeles to Iceland

This summer people living on the West Coast can fly to Iceland for $99 and to other European cities for $199 with WOW Air.

The long distance low fee carrier WOW Air is expanding to the west cost starting this summer. Travelers can get tickets from SFO and LAX to Iceland for $99 each way. Other destinations in Europe are $199 each way.

WOW Air tickets to San Francisco and Los Angeles are on sale now. You have to book well in advance to benefit from the low $99 fare. For now I only found the fable $99 fare from flights originating from Boston to Reykjavik.

WOW air also adds new A330-300 aircraft to their fleet for Los Angeles and San Francisco routes.

The routes will be serviced by three new Airbus A330-300 aircraft, the first wide-body planes in the WOW air fleet, which will each carry 340 passengers in a single-class configuration. The routes will connect with daily flights to Keflavik from London Gatwick (and other WOW air destinations in Europe), allowing Brits to travel with the airline to Los Angeles four times per week and San Francisco five times a week, all year round. 

WOW air will begin flying to the West Coast of the United States in summer 2016 with inaugural flights starting in San Francisco on June 9th and in Los Angeles starting on June 15th.

Service from San Francisco to Iceland will be available five days a week and service from Los Angeles to Iceland will be available four days a week with connecting flights on to other European destinations.

Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW air said: “We are thrilled to add Los Angeles and San Francisco to our fast growing network. This is a game changer for WOW air as we cement ourselves as the industry leader in the ultra-low-cost long haul category. With the addition of these long range A330-300 aircraft to our fleet, we will be able to offer fares from Europe to the US West Coast far cheaper than our competitors whilst maintaining great service with a smile, as we did with our routes to Boston, Washington DC, Toronto and Montreal. We have had a tremendously positive response to our low prices on our current transatlantic routes and this gives us confidence that passengers will take up the chance to travel even further afield. Equally, we're sure Californians will welcome our super low fares to Europe.”  

Launched in November 2011, WOW air now connects twenty destinations across the US and Europe with the Icelandic capital. WOW air's annual passenger capacity will more than double in 2016 to over 1.8 million, up from approximately 840,000 in 2015.
