Get­ting there

Wow Air fly from Dublin to Pitts­burgh with an hour and a half stop-over in Reyk­javik air­port. Wow Air are do­ing quite a clever thing; fly­ing five planes in from var­i­ous Euro­pean cities at one time and an hour and a half later fly­ing five other planes out, to five Amer­i­can cities. It means you can now get to places like Mi­ami or Pitts­burgh from Brus­sels or Dublin far eas­ier than be­fore — wowair.ie
