New indirect flights from Cork Airport in Ireland to Toronto and Montreal will become available in 2017, when low-cost airline Wow Air begins its new routes.
Iceland’s low-cost airline announced it will begin services in May next year to Reykjavik.
From there, passengers will be able to transfer to cities in the US and Canada, including Toronto and Montreal.
The airline says prices for these flights from Cork will start at €150 each way.
Services will also be available to New York, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, and Washington DC.
“Today’s announcement is good news for tourism to Cork and the South of Ireland,” Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland said.
“Not only will it help grow visitor numbers from Iceland, but this new service will also offer connectivity between North America and Cork.
“We look forward to co-operating with WOW air, Cork Airport and other tourism partners, to maximize the promotion of this new service from Reykjavik to Cork,” Mr Gibbons added.
The airline will operate four flights from Cork each week to Reykjavik, on Airbus A320 / A321 planes. Layovers for connecting flights will typically last around two hours.
