​WOW air Reviews

It was said that this is Iceland’s only high performance low-cost airline. We promise you that WOW feeling and Iceland’s most punctual airline. I am really enticed by their services and offers shown all over the web. Let us see how WOW air services are living to its standards.

How It Began?

The current Chief Executive Officer, Skúli Mogensen, was also the founder of WOW air on May 31, 2012. He’s a businessman in technology and telecommunication. The airline is privately owned by him and it’s debt free. With this short start in aviation business, WOW air already won the Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) by Icelandic Transport Authority in 2013.

In 2012, WOW air acquired Iceland Express’s operations and network. The main base of the low cost airlines is at Keflavík International Airport with 3 Airbus A320 and 2 Airbus A321 and mainly serves European destinations. However the recent expansion in 2016 will include North American: USA and Canada.

WOW Services

WOW air Reviews-serviceThe Icelandic low budget air service was the first airline that offered a one way flight for only $99 starting March 2015, this made travelling to Europe easier and cheaper. This was the main reason how I found WOW air. The airline operates a single traditional class of service, wherein passengers are satisfied with their extensive meal selection available to purchase on board such as sandwiches, baguette, porridge and snacks. When it comes to drinks, they are quite generous with range of choice from juices, beer, coffee, hot chocolate and/or tea.

Extra services includes customers’ choice for seat selection for more leg room. They also assist customers who need special attention and/or customers with extra luggage.

Official Website

After selecting, this will lead them to another page with a pop up message asking to join their WOW club, this club is the airline’s newsletter service. The color theme of WOW air is purple aimed is to give a bright and eye-catching effect to travelers.

The official website features let travelers book flights, hotel reservations and car rentals. This is obviously same as other airline sites. WOW air’s page also gives customers the essential information they need such as policies and inflight services including the special assistance and meals. However they are not generous enough to extend their services to mobile applications.

WOW air Reviews of Travellers

“I had a good experience with WOW air from Baltimore Washington to Berlin Schönefeld return via Keflavik. All flights were on time. A321 is narrow body but seats are more comfortable than many US airlines economy seats.”

  1. The flight was delayed around 3 hours 40 minutes. There were no any compensation (e.g refreshing, meals or finance) for this delay. The service was OK and like other low costs airlines we had to buy everything like water and bagage. The seat was OK and could not recline as we were sat in the back row – 35E and 35 F.
