2 Airlines to Launch Service From Cleveland to Iceland

Two airlines announced this week that they will begin flying from Cleveland to Iceland next May, thus restoring service between Northeast Ohio and Europe after an eight-year absence.

Both carriers are based in Iceland. WOW Air said it would begin flights to Reykjavik on May 4 and has started selling tickets for the flights, with some going as low as $99 one way.

Flights will arrive in Cleveland at 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

Departures will leave Cleveland on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 12:30 a.m.

Icelandair said it will fly between Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and Keflavik International Airport in Reykjavik four times a week. It has not yet said what days it will operate and what its schedule will be.

Both airlines emphasized the connections that they have from their Iceland hubs to major cities in Europe.

Cleveland has been without service to Europe since 2009. Continental Airlines previously operated non-stop flights to Paris and London.

WOW also flies to Iceland from Pittsburgh and plans to launch new service to Cincinnati, Detroit and St. Louis.
