New Flights Launch into Great Lakes USA

Two airlines announce they will be flying into the Great Lakes USA region from the UK in 2018.

Icelandair will run four flights a week via Reykjavik to Cleveland, Ohio starting in May 2018. Icelandair flies to Reykjavik from seven UK airports: Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Belfast.

Icelandic airline Wow Air will be introducing Cleveland, and Cincinnati both in Ohio and Detroit, Michigan, to its portfolio of US destinations - with a new route from Stansted airport.

 The new Wow Air and Icelandair flights add two additional gateways into the Great Lakes, joining Chicago, Minneapolis St Paul and the existing Virgin Delta flight into Detroit, making it even easier for British travellers to explore the region.

 These announcements coming following the news Norwegian Air will fly to Chicago O'Hare from March 2018 from Gatwick Airport, using the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Toby McCarrick, Executive Director of the Great Lakes USA said: "We are excited to see new carriers such as Wow Air, Icelandair in 2017 and Norwegian in 2018 launching flights from the UK into the Great Lakes region.  This helps to increase the variety of air travel on offer for the holiday maker, making the region more accessible and cost effective.  We are delighted to see the commitment from these airlines for this amazing region."
