Passengers will be able to take nonstop trips to Iceland from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport beginning next year, the airport announced Wednesday.
WOW air, a three-year-old Icelandic low-fare airline that flies between Iceland and Europe, will debut service in the U.S. at BWI and Logan International Airport in Boston in June 2015.
The airline will fly Airbus A321 planes and offer four seasonal, round-trip flights a week — on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday — between BWI and Keflavik International Airport in Reykjavik, Iceland, the airport said.
"We are thrilled to add the culture and spectacular natural beauty of Iceland to our expanding list of international destinations," BWI CEO Paul J. Wiedefeld said in a release.
Iceland is the second new international destination BWI has announced recently, and the airport said it will undergo construction to support more international service. Southwest Airlines will begin flights to San Jose, Costa Rica in March 2015, the airport said.
