Edinburgh Airport welcomed the first WOW air flight from Keflavik in Iceland recently.

Making travel to Iceland and beyond more affordable for those in Scotland, fares from Edinburgh to Keflavik start at £55, with flights departing Edinburgh for the airline’s hub in Reykjavik twice-weekly between now and October on Sundays and Wednesdays, with a total flight time of two hours 30 minutes.

Passengers travelling through will then have a short stopover before continuing on to one of the airline’s North American destinations - Boston, Washington D.C., Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles or San Francisco. Skúli Mogensen, the carrier's founder and CEO, said: “It’s an extremely proud moment to see the first WOW air plane set off from the runaway at Edinburgh Airport. As our third departure point in the UK, the commencement of this route signifies our continued growth in Britain and our aim to improve accessibility between the two isles. We look forward to welcoming Scottish holidaymakers on board over the course of the summer, en route to memorable adventures in Iceland, the US and Canada.”
