WOW! Cork Airport starts flights to Iceland next May – and onwards to US

Cork Airport says it is 'flying high' after today’s announcement that the Icelandic low cost operator WOW Air, a new airline to the region, is to commence a new Cork – Reykjavik service next year.

The new service with WOW will start from 19th May 2017. The airline will operate four convenient weekly flights on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday during the Summer 2017 season and will operate three weekly services during Winter 2017.  The new service to the land of fire and ice will see an additional 66,000 seats available from Cork Airport next year. 

'We’re absolutely delighted to welcome WOW air to Cork as our latest airline partner,' said Cork Airport managing director Niall MacCarthy.

WOW’s new year-round service will also bring low-cost transatlantic connections from Cork to eight key destinations across the US and Canada.

WOW Air’s one-way air fares to Reykjavik will start at €59.99 each way including taxes and charges. The airline will also provide easy and affordable access from Cork to Boston, Los Angeles, Miami, Montreal, New York City, San Francisco, Toronto and Washington DC, with starting fares as low as €149 each way.
