Free Airfare for Brits Moving to Iceland!

Free Airfare for Brits Moving to Iceland!

WOW air offers free seats for Brits looking to move to the northern Nordic nation!

As part of its goal to introduce the world to Icelandic culture, low-cost transatlantic airline WOW air has announced it is offering free flights for Brits relocating to its homeland up north.

That’s right, free!

The five year old airline has already carried millions of visitors to its Icelandic homeland, with services to Reykjavik (Keflavik International Airport) departing from London, Bristol and Edinburgh. Extending an Icelandic welcome to those who are swapping the UK for a more permanent local experience, the airline is offering expats moving to Iceland between now and 1 October 2016 a free journey.

With crime very low and cases of homicide even rarer (there were no murders in Iceland during three of the last fifteen years) it’s no wonder that Iceland has been ranked the most peaceful place in the world for the past six years by the World Economic Forum*. The country has become increasingly popular with British travellers in recent years, offering volcanic and lunar landscapes, relaxing geothermal pools and views of the famous Northern Lights, while culture vultures have enjoyed its growing craft beer scene, world class restaurants and ‘Scandi’ designer goods.

Brits moving to Iceland with WOW air will simply need to send proof of their taking up residence such as a university acceptance letter, lease agreement or employment confirmation to [email protected]. The offer is limited to British citizens, whether individuals or families, moving to Iceland for a minimum of 1 year from their date of departure. WOW air will refund the outbound airfare from the UK to Iceland only, once the application is confirmed. Any indication that the offer is being falsely applied for will result in it being declined.

WOW air currently operates services to 30 destinations across Europe and North America, bringing with it the charming and friendly attitude Iceland is famous for. The airline operates the newest fleet in Iceland as well as the greenest with its young A320, A321 and wide-bodied A330-300 aircraft offering reduced emissions.
