Oftentimes the most difficult part of traveling overseas is the strain on one’s wallet. Coming in May of 2018, Wow air has a solution for Kentucky travelers.
Wow air, an Icelandic-based airline known for its cheap flights to a variety of European destinations, will begin flying out of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in May.
Tickets went on sale Wednesday, with one-way trips to Iceland available for $99. Through its main Icelandic hub, passengers can travel to cities such as London, Paris, Dublin and Amsterdam for as little as $149 each way. More than two-dozen destinations in Europe will be available.
“The Paris flight is the only direct transatlantic flight in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. This part of the country is definitely under-served in terms of international offerings,” airport CEO Candace McGraw told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “You can’t beat $99 into Iceland or $149 into Europe.”
The Enquirer also reported the airport currently has just one direct flight to Europe, a Delta Air Lines flight to Paris.
St. Louis, Detroit and Cleveland will also be added to Wow’s destinations in the United States. In all of the newly-added cities, including Cincinnati, Wow will have four flights a week.
