Icelandic Airlines to 'WOW' Angelenos with Cheap Fares to Iceland, Europe

WOW air will begin offering its low-cost flights to Iceland and other European countries out of Los Angeles International Airport starting this summer, offering rates that start at $99.

LAX passengers of the Icelandic airline can opt to connect to European cities such as London, Paris, Berlin, Frankfurt, Dublin, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Stockholm -- after a one-hour stopover in Iceland -- with one-way rates starting at $199, according to the airline.

The first flight will be between Reykjavik and Los Angeles on June 15, with departure flights at LAX to be available four days a week. Tickets went on sale Tuesday.

Rates begin at $99 for trips to Iceland and $199 for European destinations, varying depending on the schedule, according to airline representatives.

WOW air founder Skuli Mogensen said the introduction of flights out of LAX, as well as San Francisco, “is a game changer for WOW air and arguably the travel industry, making travel to Iceland and other European countries both easy and affordable from California.”...more
