Getting to Canada is getting easier and easier.
WOW air has announced it will begin operating flights from Dublin to Vancouver, via Reykjavik, beginning next summer, with the inaugural flight taking off in June 2019.
The new route will operate six times weekly on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday and will be serviced by a A321neo.
The total flight time will take just shy of eight hours but there will be a four-hour layover in Reykjavik along the way.
It’s the first low-cost, long-haul flight to run between Dublin and Vancouver, with flights costing €129 one way.
Speaking on the announcement, Svanhvít Fridriksdóttir, Director of Communications at WOW air, said:
“We are delighted to offer our Irish passengers a new and exciting Canadian destination. The addition of Vancouver to our route network reflects our commitment to continually improve our offering for our Irish passengers.
“We know Canada, and in particular Vancouver, is hugely popular among Irish emigrants. We are delighted to be able to offer them a more affordable way to travel, whether that’s coming home to visit friends and family or allowing loved ones to cross the Atlantic and visit relatives in their new homes.”
This will be the third Canadian destination that WOW will serve from Ireland with flights to Toronto and Montreal already in service.
