WOW air is expanding its Canadian services by opening a new route in Vancouver.

Starting June 2019, there will be six weekly flights out of Vancouver International Airport (YVR) with one-way fares to Reykjavik starting for as low as $129.

Beginning today, Canadians can purchase their tickets, and get a head start on planning for their upcoming summer vacation! The route, operating A321neo aircraft, a first for YVR, will connect Canadians travellers to New Delhi, Tel Aviv and other European destinations.

We are delighted to expand our roster of destinations to include Canada’s west coast,” said Skúli Mogensen, CEO and founder of WOW air.

“The new route in Vancouver is a testament to our commitment to pursue growth in North America, as well as connect more Canadian travellers to our growing list of overseas destinations.”

“It’s right there in the name – WOW! We are so excited to welcome this new, innovative airline partner to YVR and further connect B.C. proudly to the world with increased service to Iceland and beyond,” said Craig Richmond, President and CEO of Vancouver Airport Authority.

“With the addition of WOW Airlines, we are well on our way to reaching our goal of 29 million passengers by 2020 and will have 57 airlines servicing the YVR community.”
