Low-cost transatlantic carrier WOW air offers year-round connection to Ireland.Wow

Iceland’s only low-cost airline is offering a new affordable gateway to Ireland from Boston Logan Airport (BOS) and Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI) for as little as $99 one-way.

The WOW air service to Dublin via Reykjavik, Iceland, is now available out of BWI and BOS two days a week, all year round. Flights out of BOS and BWI are now available for as low as $99* one way including taxes.

According to the United States Census, about 34 million Americans list their heritage as primarily or partially Irish. The Boston-metro area has one of the highest populations of Irish-Americans in the US with over 20 percent of Bostonians claiming familial ties to Ireland.

CEO WOW air Skuli Mogensen said, “We recognize the vast market for heritage travel to Ireland and we’re happy to offer affordable year-round service from BWI and BOS to Dublin.”

The transatlantic carrier’s low prices and easy connections are ideal for Americans interested in tracing their Irish ancestry.

Connections in Iceland take place in the same compact terminal, with connection times as low as 70 minutes, and no need to re-enter security clearance.

The new flights will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays and will all include a two-hour stopover in the Icelandic capital. The Dublin to Boston journey will take 12 hours and 20 minutes while the Dublin to Washington flight, including the stopover, will last 12 hours and 45 minutes.
