“WOW air is very excited to bring our flight services to St. Louis,” said Skúli Mogensen, CEO and Founder of WOW Air. “We are proud of our growth in the Midwest and are honored to partner with St. Louis Lambert International Airport to offer low cost fares to Europe.”
The St. Louis Economic Development Partnership and officials at Lambert have worked closely to land the new flights. The Partnership will support WOW in a marketing plan to promote the service.
“We made a smart investment through the St. Louis County Port Authority to provide the key incentives to secure these flights,” County Executive Steve Stenger said in a statement. He added that WOW provides more options for people throughout the area who want to travel internationally and business people who have interests overseas.
“Europe is one of the largest feeder markets for in-bound international tourists to St. Louis,” said Explore St. Louis President Kitty Ratcliffe. “Especially travelers from England, France and Germany.” She said they come to the region to take in several attractions including the Gateway Arch and the St. Louis Cardinals.
WOW’s announcement is continuing momentum for the airport. Lambert International officials say flights being added this year include service to Cancun, Mexico, and a second daily flight to San Diego. Missouri is home to two international airport as well as numerous regional airports, and offers direct, non-stop flights to 73 cities across North America. Our central location allows companies to get product and people around the world faster than ever.
