PITTS AND STARTS

The Daily Telegraph - Travel - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s al­most as if Ice­landers don’t want to stay in Ice­land – be­cause Wow Air (wowair.co.uk), the Reyk­javik bud­get flier, is Stars-and-Stripes-mad, dash­ing to 13 US air­ports. This in­cludes Pitts­burgh (vis­it­pitts­burgh.com), the less-feted Penn­syl­va­nia city whose Andy Warhol Mu­seum (warhol. org/mu­seum) is su­perb. Flights are pos­si­ble from Gatwick, Stansted and Ed­in­burgh. Re­turns from the lat­ter start at £341.

Pitts­burgh? Glob­ally renowned pop-art icons who painted tins of soup? Too ob­vi­ous for you? OK. Sure. Wow Air also flut­ters into St Louis (ex­plorest­louis.com). Erm, sorry, where? Ex­actly. It’s in Mis­souri. It’s on the Mis­sis­sippi. It has that huge land­mark, the Gate­way Arch (gate­wa­yarch.com). You know, that big up­turned “U” which rises to 630ft.
