To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday (1 July 2017), WOW air, Iceland’s low-fare airline, is offering its Irish passengers flights from Dublin and Cork to Canada via Reykjavik for €150 one way.

Canada’s 150th birthday celebration falls on 1 July, Canada Day, which marks the enactment of the Constitution Act of 1867 which united the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Ireland ranks 11th in the world for Canadian work permits and 27th for residency permits.

WOW air flies from Dublin via Reykjavik to Toronto and Montréal up to seven times weekly and from Cork via Reykjavik to Toronto and Montréal up to four times a week. The WOW Stopover option allows passengers to explore Iceland on either leg of their transatlantic journey for an unlimited time.

Commenting today, Svanhvít Fridriksdóttir, Director of Communications at WOW air, said: “We are excited to announce even more affordable flights from Ireland to Canada to celebrate the country’s 150th birthday.

“Canada is a hugely popular destination for Irish people. Those travelling to Toronto or Montréal to visit loved ones or to take a weekend break to explore the world’s second largest country can do so at a lower cost than ever before. Equally, with flights more affordable than ever, it’s a great time for those living in Canada to make a short trip home to visit family and friends.”

WOW air became the first airline to operate direct scheduled flights between Ireland and Iceland in June 2015. Flights connect passengers to ten North America destinations via the Icelandic capital Reykjavik, including New York , Boston, Washington DC, Toronto, Montréal, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Pittsburgh, with a new Chicago route beginning on 13 July.
