WOW Air’s aircraft rotation allows for up to five more new routes
Airlines are flocking back to once-again fashionable Iceland, with SAS, Lufthansa, Norwegian and easyJet all announcing new routes in their summer 2012 schedules (SAS from Stockholm). Icelandair, meanwhile, is expecting an unprecedented 1.8 million passengers during 2011.
As reported, entrepreneurs in Iceland have launched the low-cost airline WOW Air. WOW will operate two Airbus A320s to serve Alicante, Basel, Berlin, Cologne/Bonn, Copenhagen, Krakow, London Stansted, Lyon, Paris, Stuttgart, Warsaw and Zurich. But according to calculations by anna.aero, WOW Air’s aircraft rotation plan still allows for up to five more new routes, providing a rare opportunity for any airports in Europe wanting to jump on the Iceland bandwagon.
