WOW air About WOW air

Founded in November 2011 by Icelandic businessman Skúli Mogensen, WOW Air started its inaugural flight on May 31, 2012, during a link between Keflavík and Paris. On October 23, it took over the airline activity of Iceland Express, which enabled it to rapidly develop its air network. It also retained some of the former employees in order to benefit from their experience and know-how. During the year 2012, the Icelandic company transported 112,223 passengers.WOW Air took another step forward in October 2013, when it obtained its Air Operator Operating License (AOC) from the Icelandic Transport Agency, and then its first A320 in November. During the year 2013,With a view to improving its hotel + plane offer and offering ever more preferential rates, the Icelandic company joined forces with Booking.com in September 2014.

It continued to develop its air network by announcing on October 16 the creation of a link between Reykjavík and Tenerife, commissioned from April 4, 2015. The announcement, on October 22, of rotations between London and Boston and London Baltimore / Washington DC followed, the launch of which is scheduled from March 27, 2015. Although the first flights to Dublin are expected on June 2, 2015, the first tickets go on sale on January 15, 2015. WOW Air carried its millionth passenger in December.

The fleet of the still young airline currently consists of eleven aircraft. The average age of the aircraft made by Airbus is 5.4 years. The airline is striving to enlarge its fleet and to include additional destinations in the flight plan. Thus, the flight plan is to be optimized over the next few years and tailored to the needs of the passengers.

Even if WOW Air is an airline that primarily offers low-cost flights, the airline must comply with legal requirements and regulations. This is particularly important for international flights. If these are not achieved or complied with, the affected aircraft of the airline may not take off or land in the respective countries. The internationally applicable regulations are especially beneficial and reassuring for passengers, as it can be assumed that the aircraft are in perfect condition. A safety briefing by the cabin crew takes place at the beginning of every flight. This means that the passengers are prepared for an emergency and know what to do then.
