An Icelandic airline’s first flight from St. Louis took off Thursday night!

Last August, WOW airlines announced they would offer service from St. Louis four days-per-week with one-way tickets beginning at $99. International stops with destinations including London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Dublin, and more begin at $149.

The airline is Iceland’s low-cost, transatlantic airline. It originally began service to North America with a stop in Boston, made in March 2015. When WOW began service in the Midwest in 2017, they made a stop in Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. The airline said with the addition of St. Louis Lambert International Airport, the total number of U.S. stops is brought to 12.

The inaugural flight from St. Louis to Iceland take off around 10:55 p.m.

In early December, the airline will begin offering flights to India. In honor of the route, WOW is offering $199 one-way tickets from St. Louis to Delhi.

The airline is relatively new and was founded in 2011. They only began service to the United States in 2015.

The airline charges $39 for a bag and $10 for a standard seat.

Tickets can be purchased on the airline’s website.
