WOW air announces flights from Dallas Fort Worth to Europe beginning in May 2018
WOW air, Iceland’s low-cost transatlantic airline, will make Dallas Fort Worth International Airport its thirteenth U.S. destination since its North American launch in March 2015, a news release says.
“We’re pleased to welcome WOW Air to Dallas Fort Worth and look forward to providing our customers with another non-stop trans-Atlantic destination,” said Sean Donohue, CEO for DFW Airport. “Reykjavik is a popular tourist destination, a growing market for international business and a convenient connecting point to continental Europe. We look forward to giving visitors from Iceland a warm Texas welcome when they arrive next year.”
Non-stop flights from DFW Airport to Keflavik International Airport in Iceland are scheduled to begin May 24, 2018 and will be available three days per week.
Flights from Dallas to Iceland are available starting at $99 one-way including taxes. WOW air is also offering fares from D/FW to Paris (CDG), Copenhagen (CPH), Amsterdam (AMS), Frankfurt (FRA), London (LGW and STN), Dublin (DUB) and Berlin (SXF) via Iceland (KEF) starting at $149 one-way including taxes, the release says.
“WOW air is thrilled to bring our low-fare, transatlantic flight service to Dallas in May 2018,” said Skúli Mogensen, CEO and Founder of WOW air. “Because of our low-cost fares, we hope more people are enabled to experience international travel. Dallas Fort Worth is a world-class region and we can’t wait to give European travelers the opportunity to experience all that Texas has to offer.”
The new route will open up more travel choices for DFW Airport flyers via the WOW air hub in Reykjavik, which serves 22 destinations in Europe and the Middle East.
When it launches service in May 2018, WOW air will be the 16th international carrier to serve DFW International Airport.
