WOW to pull out of Gatwick

Budget Icelandic airline WOW is to pull out of Gatwick from March 31 next year.

Instead, it will operate daily flights from Stansted to Keflavik airport in Reykjavik leaving at 11.20, which the airline said will allow passengers to make onward connections to the US and Canada.

Stansted aviation director Mats Sigurdson said: "We're delighted that WOW air has chosen to base its London operation at London Stansted Airport. We saw really high demand over the summer from passengers choosing WOW's flights to Reykjavik and beyond to destinations across the United States, and inbound tourism to London and the East of England. We look forward to welcoming more WOW air passengers to London Stansted Airport early next year."

The airline will also reintroduce its summer-only Edinburgh-Keflavik service in June 2019 offering three flights a week, also ensuring time for transatlantic connections.
