Beginning in April 2017, Icelandic airline Wow Air will offer cheap transatlantic flights from Dublin to Miami, with a stop-over in Rekjavik.
The budget carrier, which flies a number of routes to the U.S. from Dublin via Iceland, will begin the new service next spring and operate through the summer, with flights on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, the Irish Times reports. The airline said one way tickets would start at €139.

The new flight route is mainly being marketed to European travelers traveling to North America, reports Miami New Times.
There has been speculation that Aer Lingus is also considering offering flights to Miami next year. The Irish airline is likely to announce one new transatlantic route for 2017 soon, and the Florida city has been mentioned as a candidate.
Recently, the industry journal Anna Aero named Dublin-Miami as one of the “most unserved” routes according to an analysis of demand from online searches.
