WOW Air Launches Flights to JFK
WOW Air has just announced its latest U.S destination: the Big Apple. The airline plans to commence flights to New York (JFK) on April 26, 2018. The flight between Reykjavik and JFK is scheduled to be just over six hours and will be flown daily. WOW Air will join Delta Air Lines and its closest competitor, Icelandair, both of which already offer nonstop flights between the two airports.
The new flights will help continue to increase the airline’s presence in the New York area. The airline began flying to Newark in the latter half of 2016 and has seen great success on that route. In May 2018, WOW Air will transition from offering daily flights to 13 weekly flights between its Iceland hub and Newark. By next summer, WOW Air will be flying 20 times a week between the two New York City airports and Iceland’s capital.
Tickets between JFK and Reykjavik are on sale and start at $99 one-way. The airline, which is known to offer very low-fares on transatlantic flights, charges for additional amenities such as seat assignments, checked bags, drinks, and food.
Flights between the two cities will be operated with Airbus A321 aircraft, which has become the backbone of the airline’s fleet over the last few years.
In 2015, the airline began flying to Boston, its first U.S. destination. Since then, it has rapidly expanded to 16 destinations in North America. In August alone, the carrier announced its plans to connect Cleveland, Cincinnati, Detroit, and St. Louis to Europe, via Reykjavik. Just a few weeks later, the airline began selling seats for flights to Dallas.
By using Reykjavik as a transit point, the airline has been able to attract many customers looking for low fares and flying between the U.S. and Europe.
With WOW Air’s constant route expansion, the airline’s fleet is also growing. The airline currently operates 17 airplanes, however, this number will increase to 24 by the end of 2018. The biggest addition to the fleet will be four new Airbus A330-900neo aircraft, which will increase the airline’s wide-body fleet to seven aircraft.

WOW Air becomes the airline most used by Icelanders
New figures show that WOW air have surpassed Icelandair, Iceland's oldest airline, as the leading airline for Icelanders.
"In our mind this is quite a milestone because few people ever expected us to reach this goal," says WOW air managing director Skúli Mogensen.
WOW air has made an analysis of Icelandair's investor report and WOW air statistics and data from the Icelandic Tourist Board shows that WOW air have a 38% share in the third quarter of the year 2017 of Icelanders flying to and from Keflavik International Airport while Icelandair have 34% and other airlines have 28 %.
Last year over the same period of time those figures were 36 %, 37 % and 27%.
Distribution of departures by Icelanders leaving from Keflavik international airport in the third quarter of the year 2016 and 2017.
"The reason that Icelanders have been positive towards our product and services is because we've really lowered flight prices," says Mogensen speaking to mbl.is. "There was obviously a market for a low cost airline in Iceland just like anywhere else in the world where they've grown and prospered."
He adds that when the company started there were many negative voices towards it. "That discussion has really turned around lately and I think that these figures speak for themselves."
When asked whether he believes that the gap between Icelandair and WOW air will widen he replies, "Yes, we are just at the beginning."
