Wow Air wants to fly daily between Europe and USA
Icelandic low-cost carrier Wow Air wants to boost capacity and fly daily between Europe and the United States, after tickets were bought quickly for flights it will operate five times a week from March 2015.
It has been offering tickets at GBP£99 (€127) one way from London to Boston via Iceland. Wow now intends to add four more planes on routes between Iceland and the US from 2016.
“At that price, frankly, it sold out overnight,” Skuli Mogensen, the carrier’s founder, owner and chief executive, told Reuters news agency. “We’ve been working hard to find additional capacity because clearly we see that there is a huge opportunity to do what we’re doing.”
