Direct flights from St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) to Iceland’s Keflavik International Airport (KEF) began on Thursday, May 17.  Iceland’s low-cost transatlantic airline, WOW air, will offer five outbound flights each week during the peak summer months and early fall.

Keflavik is a fast-growing international hub which offers quick and easy connections to top European destinations such as London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Dublin and Copenhagen.  WOW air will operate out of Terminal 2 and Gate E-29 at STL’s Airport.

The St. Louis Economic Development Partnership worked closely with local leaders in 2017 to land the new transatlantic international service.  The Partnership committed to a marketing support plan for WOW air to promote the new service to an international audience.

STL’s Airport surpassed 14.3 million total passengers in the most-recent fiscal year.  In 2018, its airlines will operate more than 250 daily departures to 72 non-stop U.S. and international destinations during the peak summer travel period.
