WOW air has announced a new service from the UK to Miami beginning in April 2017, with fares from £119 one way.

Flights will depart from Gatwick to Miami via Reykjavik, offering travellers the chance to experience the sun soaked city that acts as a gateway to South America and the Caribbean.

The inaugural service to Miami International Airport (MIA) will depart next year on April 5, and will operate three times per week year round.

Skúli Mogensen, CEO of the airline, said: “Having lived in Miami myself, I understand the appeal for many UK and European travellers, so I am thrilled to add this global and energetic city to our ever growing list of North-American destinations. With our New York service commencing in November and now Miami only a few months later, we are thrilled to continue our mission to offer the lowest fares across the Atlantic.”

Tickets for the new route are on sale at midday today via
