Ultra-low-cost airline WOW air has today announced that it will be moving its London Gatwick service across to London Stansted, effective 31 March 2019.
The new schedule from London Stansted will see daily flights to Keflavik depart at 11:20, allowing passengers to make onward connections to the US and Canada.
Mats Sigurdson, London Stansted Aviation Director, said: “We’re delighted that WOW air has chosen to base its London operation at London Stansted Airport. We saw really high demand over the summer from passengers choosing WOW’s flights to Reykjavik and beyond to destinations across the United States, and inbound tourism to London and the East of England. We look forward to welcoming more WOW air passengers to London Stansted Airport early next year.”
To mark the occasion, the airline has released special fares to Iceland – starting from £29.99* – and for select US and Canadian destinations**, with prices starting from £149.99 one way. Flights are available to book now, for travel on select dates between April – May and Sept – October 2019.
In addition, to further expand its UK market, the airline will be reintroducing its Edinburgh-Keflavik route following a seasonal pause, with flights commencing in June 2019. Flights will operate three times per week, also ensuring time for transatlantic connections.
WOW air’s London Gatwick schedule will remain unchanged until 31 March 2019.
