Today, WOW air announced it would begin service to Iceland and other parts of Europe from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport beginning in May 2018 – on the heels of an announcement made earlier this week that Icelandair would also begin service out of Hopkins.
The two airline additions to Hopkins are a testament to the city’s growing role as a first-class national and international destination for business and leisure. Both are well-known for their affordability for U.S.-to-Europe travel.
Mayor Frank G. Jackson was on hand to welcome WOW air to Cleveland at a press conference this morning.
“Cleveland has a strong international presence and is a major destination for tourists and business travelers,” said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “WOW air is the second international carrier in the past few days to announce they will provide flights from Cleveland to Europe. This announcement speaks to the hard work by Cleveland to become a global provider, connecting us to the European market and positioning the region for future growth.”
Earlier this week, Icelandair also announced it would begin service to Europe in May 2018.
