Four new US destinations are being added to Icelandic low cost carrier Wow Air’s transatlantic network.

Detroit, Cleveland, St Louis and Cincinnati will all be introduced next spring using Airbus A321 aircraft together with a new connecting route from Stansted to Reykjavik.

Fares on the new North Atlantic routes start at £129.99 one-way with the Stansted flights leading in at £29.99.

Detroit starts on April 25, Cleveland on May 3, Cincinnati on May 9, and St Louis on May 17. The first Stansted departure to Iceland is on April 25.

Airline founder and cheif executive, Skúli Mogensen, said: “It’s a big day for Wow Air as we launch flights from Stansted, our second London airport, plus services to these four new US mid-west destinations.

“We are proud of our growth over the last two years and will continue to work tirelessly to provide the lowest fares possible to connect the UK to North America, helping to make international travel truly a possibility for everyone.”

Stansted commercial director Martin Jones added: “We are delighted Wow Air has chosen to come to London Stansted and become the latest airline to join our growing base of carriers operating from the airport.

“Reykjavik is a fantastic city and I’m sure it will prove to be a very popular destination in its own right but with the added benefit of opening up the airline’s extensive North American route network from its Icelandic hub, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco and Montreal, these new flights will also appeal to both business and leisure passengers from London and east of England as well those visiting the UK from the USA.”
