WOW air OrlandoWOW air is starting a new route from the UK to Orlando, Florida in December.

The first flight of the Icelandic airline on the new route will depart on December 18 from Gatwick and Edinburgh via Reykjavik, Iceland's capital city. The service will operate three times a week and introductory fares begin from £129.99.

The new route aims to cater to the UK travellers looking to escape the winter for a sunny getaway in Orlando which offers warm weather year-round. 

Skúli Mogensen, founder and CEO of the airline, said: "We’re thrilled to be adding Orlando to our ever-expanding route network and hope this will mean more budget-conscious travellers will soon be able to experience not only what the city of Orlando has to offer but also the wider Florida State. As our 16th destination in North America, this is an important marker of our continuing mission to push the price point to fly across the Atlantic as low as possible.

"As well as being a destination traditionally popular with British families seeking a getaway during the chilly winter months, we’re equally excited to welcome business travellers on board to experience our new WOW Premium offering. In addition to flying in comfort in one of our luxurious ‘Big Seats’, Premium passengers now get extra checked baggage, free food and drink on board, fast track security when departing or transiting in Iceland and the freedom to change bookings free of charge.”
