A bumper 2015 for WOW air
Icelandic low-cost airline WOW air carried 740,000 passengers last year – up a massive 50% on the figure for 2014.
December was a particularly successful month for the airline, with 58,000 passengers choosing to fly with WOW air, some 80% more than the previous year.
“2015 exceeded our most optimistic expectations and the airline achieved all of its objectives,” says founder and CEO Skúli Mogensen. “We are very grateful for and proud of the positive response we have received on both sides of the Atlantic and in Iceland.”
This year will see a raft of new destinations for WOW air, with passengers soon able to fly with the airline direct to Bristol, the Canary Islands, Los Angeles, Montreal, Nice, San Francisco, Stockholm and Toronto in 2016.
WOW air promises the announcement of even more new destinations over the coming months.
