WOW air

Icelandic low-cost airline, WOW air, today announced the launch of flights to San Francisco and Los Angeles from Bristol Airport via its Reykjavik hub.

Following the announcement in December that Bristol was to become WOW air’s second UK departure point for flights to Iceland and North America, tickets for flights to California beginning 13 June 2016 have gone on sale this week from just £139 one way.

Flights will depart Bristol Airport on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with all services providing the opportunity to connect onwards to Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Passengers travelling to North America now also have the opportunity to add a stopover in Reykjavik to their travel itinerary, combining an American adventure with a short break sampling the natural wonders of Iceland.

Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW air, said: “The addition of Los Angeles and San Francisco to our rapidly expanding network is a game changer for WOW air as we cement ourselves as the industry leader in the ultra-low-cost long haul category. We always aim to be the cheapest flight provider on the routes we fly to and with the £139 fare between the UK and California we have accomplished this once again. 

“Our low fares and service with a smile have been integral to our success and we expect that these new routes, at this price, will continue to excite guests from the UK and leave them asking where WOW air will fly next.”
