Icelandic carrier WOW air is considering using Dublin Airport as a base for expansion beyond its current market, according to its chief executive, Skúli Mogensen. The low-cost airline flies between 27 cities across Europe and North America via Keflavík Airport, near the capital Reykjavík, but is now looking for a second base from which it would begin flying transatlantic. This was reported by the Irish Times today.

“Dublin is a great airport and it’s a great hub in its own right. It’s definitely a viable alternative to London for lots of reasons,” Mogensen told the Irish Times.
