WOW air Cheap Flights & Promo Fares

WOW air is a low-cost carrier in Iceland. The airline's headquarters are in Reykjavik, Iceland. Its main base is the Keflavik International Airport, also known as Reykjavik-Keflavik Airport, the largest airport in the country.

Founded in November 2011 by entrepreneur Skúli Mogensen, WOW air is owned solely by Titan, an investment company owned by Mogensen. Since its opening, rapid growth followed; in 2012, the airline handled approximately 90,000 passengers, and in 2013, it carried approximately 450,000 passengers. For 2014, WOW air is expected to have handled an estimate of 720,000 passengers.

In October 2012, WOW air acquired the operations and network of fellow low-fare airline Iceland Express, which was established in 2002 and began operations on 2003. This caused an increase in frequency of flights to Gatwick and Copenhagen, and new services to Berlin-Schönefeld, Kaunas, Salzburg, and Warsaw Chopin.

WOW air also operates a travel agency called WOW travel. WOW travel specializes in low-cost holidays in Iceland, as well as to other destinations. The agency arranges accommodations and tours to provide its guests the ultimate holiday experience.

Hand luggage is included in the standard ticket. Each passenger is given free allowance for a carry-on bag that must not exceed the weight of 5kg (11lbs).
