WOW air Offers Record-Breaking Fares for European Travel


TORONTO, June 1, 2017 /CNW/ - WOW air, Iceland's only ultra low-cost airline, is breaking its own low-fare record on flights to Europe for the third time in 2017. To celebrate the May 31st anniversary of the first flight, the airline is offering 30 days of flights to some of the hottest destinations across the Atlantic at prices which rival the cost of a one tank of gas—maybe even less depending on the car! Book fast because tickets at just C$75* won't last long for travel in June from Montreal and Toronto to Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Dublin, London and Berlin.

"We're giving out the gifts to celebrate our anniversary," says Skúli Mogensen, CEO of WOW air. "It's thanks to our passengers that we are fortunate enough to celebrate the anniversary of our first flight year after year, so we will continue raising the bar by lowering ticket prices, making European travel accessible and sharing these special milestones with Canadian travellers on-board."

A reflection of the airline's rapid growth, the list of destinations available for C$75 travel includes five European cities, each with its own flavour and attractions to offer. For an experience that pleases any or all of the senses, stop to smell the roses at the Aalsmeer Flower Festival in Amsterdam, experience a thrill or some magic at Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, or chill out at a hot spot by the water in Berlin. There's no limit to the list of world-renowned museums, shops, festivals and more that can be fit into a last-minute European getaway.
