Icelandic budget carrier Wow Air will suspend Miami-Reykjavik service on April 7, making it the first U.S. route that the rapidly expanding airline has either suspended or canceled since beginning U.S. service in 2015.

"The Miami route will be paused this summer, with the possibility of resuming in the fall," a WOW Air spokesperson said.

Wow began flying to Miami thrice weekly in April of last year. Until April 7, the carrier will fly Miami-Reykjavik two or three times per week.

Wow is slated to fly to 13 U.S. destinations this summer, including six new locations -- New York Kennedy, Detroit, St. Louis, Cleveland, Dallas and Cincinnati.

"The decision to make it more of a seasonal route was made a few months ago as Wow Air is constantly evaluating our customers' needs and adjusting as needed," Romano said.
