WOW air, an Icelandic low-cost carrier operating services between Iceland, Europe and North America, is set to expand to Orlando International Airport (MCO) with seasonal flights from MCO to Keflavik International Airport (KEF). The inaugural flight will take off before the end of the year on Dec. 18. Flights will be offered seasonally from December through the end of April, three days a week.
“We are thrilled to launch our service to and from Orlando this December, giving Floridians the chance to experience magical winters and beautiful springs in Europe for an affordable price,” said Skúli Mogensen, CEO and founder of WOW air. “Passengers will also have the opportunity to take advantage of the WOW stopover and make the most of their layover time by staying in Iceland for as long as they wish. It gives travelers the flexibility to break up a long-haul journey while taking in everything Iceland has to offer on their way to Europe, all on the same trip.”
In celebration of the launch of the new route, WOW air is offering $99 one-way fares from MCO to Iceland (KEF) and $149 one-way fares from MCO to London (LGW), Frankfurt (FRA), Edinburgh (EDI), Dublin (DUB), Paris (CDG), Copenhagen (CPH), Stockholm (ARN), Brussels (BRU), Berlin (SFX) and Amsterdam (AMS). For travelers looking to travel beyond Europe, there is an option to purchase $399 one-way flights to New Delhi (DEL) from Orlando. The special fares will be available for travel between January and March 2019 when booking a round-trip ticket.
Wow air was established in November 2011 by Mogensen, an Icelandic entrepreneur. The airline features iconic purple Airbus A320, Airbus A321, and Airbus A330 models and boasts one of the world’s youngest fleets with an average aircraft age of just two years. WOW air was ranked as the seventh best low-cost airline in Europe at the 2013, 2014 and 2015 Skytrax World Airline Awards and was the youngest airline in the top 10.
“Milan, Berlin, Edinburgh and New Delhi, these are just some of the exciting new destinations that are just one stop away from Orlando with the arrival of Wow airlines,” said Phil Brown, the chief executive officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “Wow’s ability as an international low-cost carrier helps open doors for more business and leisure travel between Orlando and the world.”
