WOW, flights to Chicago from £139. You have to travel via Reykjavik but it’s still a great deal to the Windy City.
The WOW air flights will depart from Gatwick, Bristol and Edinburgh to Chicago via Reykjavik, launching on July 13.
WOW boss Skúli Mogensen said, “I’m thrilled to add Chicago as our 10th North American destination, offering ultra-low fares to UK travellers who may not have previously considered travel to this exciting city viable. This is our fourth new long haul route announcement in just a few months, bringing our network now up to a total of 32 destinations.
“As the third largest metropolitan area in the US with a record number of visitors last year, there’s never been a better time to visit Chicago and we’re excited to see the response to our new route.”
The flights from Reykjavik to Chicago will be serviced by WOW air’s Airbus A321 aircraft. The total flight time will be 6 hours 40 minutes, departing on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The total journey time from Gatwick will be 11 hours, including stopover.
