Iceland-based airline WOW Air announced Thursday it will expand its services to Miami, Florida. Flights from Miami International Airport to several destinations in Europe will start in April 2017.

Miami is the sixth U.S. location WOW Air will operate in, after Baltimore/Washington, D.C., Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York (where flights are starting this fall).

“Miami is a place I know personally and the city has a lot to offer,” said Skúli Mogensen, chief operating officer of WOW Air, who once lived in the city. “I’ve also seen a great interest coming from Miami to visit Iceland, so I think this will be a welcoming add-on to our available flights.”

To start, WOW Air is offering service three times a week—Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays—and the airline may increase the number of flights down the line.

Flights go on sale Thursday, starting as low as $99 for one-way flights from Miami to Iceland. One-way flights from Miami to European destinations including Paris, Frankfurt, London, Copenhagen, Dublin, Berlin, Stockholm, and Amsterdam—all via Iceland—start at $149.

The airline also plans to make more announcements on additional North American destinations later this fall.
