WOW air, the Icelandic low-cost airline known to offer one-way fares from the U.S. to Iceland and Europe, confirmed Tuesday it's pulling out of Cleveland and other locations across the Midwest for good.

A spokesperson for the airline said "WOW air is disappointed" to confirm the cancelation of service to St. Louis Lambert International Airport, along with services to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

Flights out of Cleveland and Cincinnati will stop at the end of October.

In a statement, the airline said, "Unfortunately the routes did not achieve the profit targets set."

Passengers who booked flights to St. Louis after these dates will be entitled with a full refund, or be given another destination at no additional cost.
