TORONTO – Iceland is red hot these days, thanks in large part to WOW air’s ultra-low fares from Canada. Now, with demand surpassing expectation, the airline has announced that it will be expanding its Canadian routes before their first plane ever touches down on Canadian soil.
“Due to great demand since we first announced our Canadian routes in October 2015, we are increasing capacity for both the Montreal and Toronto routes,” said Skúli Mogensen, sole owner and CEO of WOW air. “We are thrilled with the response to our super low fares, and we will continue adding even more interesting destinations across Europe that will connect with Canada at great prices.”
WOW air will continue to offer seats at just $99 one way, including taxes to Iceland, and at $199 one way via Iceland to its other European destinations.
The expansion brings earlier start dates and more flights for both cities. Service will now begin on May 4 from Montreal and May 11 from Toronto. Originally, service was scheduled to begin on May 12 from Montreal, and May 20 from Toronto.
In addition, flights servicing Toronto are increasing to six per week from four, and those servicing Montreal will be going to five per week from four.
Flights to Iceland and other European destinations will depart Toronto’s Pearson and Montreal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau via Reykjavik using WOW air’s fleet of new Airbus A321 Extended Range aircraft.
