Very soon, St. Louis region will have direct air connectivity to Reykjavik. WOW air, the Iceland-based low cost carrier will start four flights in a week between St. Louis Lambert International Airport and Keflavik International Airport. Then the passengers can fly to other European cities like Berlin, Paris, and London.
The announcement was made on Wednesday and it’s a portion of WOW’s expansion plan into four Midwest cities. The others cities include Detroit, Cleveland and the Cincinnati area, carrying forward the number of American destinations to 12 for the airline. It started its U.S. service with Boston somewhat more than two years back.
It has taken a couple of months to jointly place the deal. The St. Louis Economic Development Partnership and Lambert officials have worked jointly worked to land new flight services. The Partnership will aid WOW in a marketing startegy to endorse the service.
Side by side, St. Louis County is playing a key role in attaining the low-cost flight services that will start at just $99 for a one-way ticket.
“We made a smart investment through the St. Louis County Port Authority to provide the key incentives to secure these flights,” County Executive Steve Stenger said in a statement. “Europe is one of the largest feeder markets for in-bound international tourists to St. Louis,” said Explore St. Louis President Kitty Ratcliffe.”
