Icelandic budget carrier Wow Air
will begin flying to Newark on Nov. 25.
The daily flight from Newark to
Reykjavik is being offered for as low as $99 one way. One-way tickets
from Newark through Reykjavik and onto one of Wow’s 23 destinations in Europe are
available for as low as $149 one way.
Wow’s announcement comes one day
after Allegiant said that it would be the first domestic ultra-low-cost carrier
to serve Newark. Allegiant will launch flights from Newark to Cincinnati;
Knoxville, Tenn.; Savannah, Ga.; and Asheville, N.C., in November.
The news from both airlines comes
on the heels of the FAA’s April decision to loosen landing restrictions at
United-dominated Newark, which has made the airport a possibility for new entrants.
