Icelandic low-cost airline WOW air will boost flights from London Gatwick to Toronto and Montreal to daily service next spring.
Effective 01MAY, the LCC will fly daily from LGW to YYZ and effective 13JUN to YUL, via Reykjavik (KEF).
The year-round services currently operate 5 times a week to both Canadian cities.
Following a year when capacity on LON routes was up 14% leading to lower fares and lower margins for all carriers, it looks as if the battle of the North Atlantic will be in full swing again for summer 2017.
“Just a year after launching our services to Canada and within a few months of increasing the frequency of our flights to the US, we’re thrilled to be in a position to continue our rapid expansion by making our Canadian routes daily,” said Skúli Mogensen, Founder & CEO of WOW air. “Canada is a diverse destination, which has been continually rising in popularity for U.K. travellers and the fantastic response to our routes has reflected this.”
