Skúli Mogensen, CEO and Founder of WOW air said, “It’s certainly been a busy year for us, with Dallas our 8th new US destination announcement this year alone. Dallas Fort Worth is one of the world’s most in-demand airports so to be able to service this area is a fantastic marker of WOW air as a serious player in the transatlantic aviation market.
As always we will continue to push the price point to fly as low as possible and open up the world to travellers of all budgets.”
“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.”
Visitors to the city have a multitude of ways to explore. Whether that be through activities that signify the southern state’s western heritage such as watching the famous Dallas Cowboys play at the AT&T Stadium and catching a rodeo at a ranch in Fort Worth, or experiencing the city’s modern side by getting to the heart of its shopping, art and foodie scene at the Metroplex.
WOW air will now offer a total of 15 transatlantic destinations, building on the success of routes to Chicago, Pittsburgh, New York, Toronto, Boston, Montreal, Washington D.C. and Californian destinations Los Angeles, San Francisco and Miami. Alongside this the airline recently announced new routes to Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis and Cincinnati from April 2018.
Flights from Iceland to Dallas will be serviced by WOW air’s fleet of Airbus A330 aircraft. The highly-innovative, wide-body jetliners provide excellent fuel efficiency and spacious cabins.
