CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - WOW Air is beginning low-cost service from Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) to Iceland and Europe on Wednesday.

The airline keeps ticket costs low by charging for a plethora of extras. You'll be paying more for carry-on luggage, extra leg room, food and drinks.

Iceland's low-cost transatlantic airline is expanding its service in the Midwest by also going to Detroit Metropolitan Airport, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and  St. Louis Lambert International Airport.

WOW officials say the company was ranked as the seventh best low-cost airline in Europe from 2013 to 2015 at the Skytrax World Airline Awards.
