The low-cost Icelandic airline will launch new flights to Boston in spring 2014WOW air, Iceland’s cheekiest, low-cost airline, will add transatlantic flights to its schedule with the launch of new routes to Boston in spring 2014.
WOW air will fly to Boston from London Gatwick via Reykjavik six times a week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

Direct flights to Boston from Reykjavik will depart at 16:30.
The new route will mark the airline’s first venture to the US, adding depth to its current list of European destinations. To accommodate the additional flights, WOW air will operate five new Airbus A320 aircraft in 2014, compared to its fleet of four in 2013.
“Our new flights to Boston mark a significant milestone for WOW air,” says Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW air. “The continued growth of the company since its inception in 2011 has been really exciting to watch and we’re really looking forward to connecting the land of fire and ice with the land of opportunity.”
Founded in 1630, Boston is one of the most historically important cities in the USA and New England’s gateway city. It owes its youthful, vibrant atmosphere to the thousands of students that frequent its various prestigious colleges and universities, keeping the city buzzing during the day and bringing it to life at night. Spring is an ideal time to make the most of the city’s museums, cute boutiques, cafes, restaurants and rich jazz scene as its 2,200 acres of green parks start to bloom.
