Icelandic airline announces low-cost fares from Ireland to the US

Icelandic airline WOW has announced low-cost fares on its services from Ireland to the United States, via Reykjavik in Iceland.

From next summer it is adding flights to Pittsburgh from both Dublin and Cork.

The route will be on offer four days a week and the company says prices start from just under €130 one way, via Reykjavik.

Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of WOW air, said: "Making exciting new destinations accessible for travellers across the world at unbeatable prices is an integral part of our ethos at WOW air.

"Pittsburgh is certainly a destination on the rise and one that will appeal to a wide range of Irish travellers looking to discover somewhere different, so we’re thrilled to add the destination to our route list.

"The past year has truly solidified our presence in the US. In the last six months alone we have added San Francisco and Los Angeles to our route network and we look forward to continuing this rate of expansion into 2017."
