About WOW Air

WOW Air was an Icelandic low-cost airline that operated from 2012 until 2019. The airline was known for offering cheap flights between Europe and North America with a stopover in Iceland. WOW Air’s business model relied heavily on charging for extras such as seat selection, baggage, and food, in order to keep ticket prices low.

However, in March 2019, WOW Air suddenly ceased operations and canceled all of its flights, leaving many passengers stranded. The airline had been facing financial difficulties for some time, and its collapse was ultimately due to a combination of rising fuel prices, fierce competition in the low-cost carrier market, and the failure of a proposed acquisition by Icelandair.
