WOW air will be the “first one to introduce a true low-cost model across the Atlantic” when it commences services from Reykjavik to Boston and Baltimore/Washington in 2015, according to CEO Skuli Mogensen (CNBC, 03-Nov-2014). On the carrier’s transatlantic business model, Mr Mogensen stated: “I think the key is really the location of Iceland. Due to the stopover in Iceland we can do this using a narrowbody fleet… A lot less fuel is required, you only need 200 people not 300 people to fill the plane.” Mr Mogensen added: “It also allows you great air fleet utilisation, because our planes can do Reykjavik-London-Reykjavik-Boston-Reykjavik all within 24 hours, so our fleet utilisation is up to 20 hours on a 24 hour basis. It’s a great, great model with Iceland in the middle.

WOW si-a pus planurile transatlantice in aplicare:
WOW Air, operator low-cost din Islanda, a închiriat 2 Airbus A321 pentru zborurile transoceanice. Aeronavele urmează să fie recepţionate la mijlocul lunii martie şi vor opera zboruri transatlantice între Reykjavik şi două destinaţii din Statele Unite: Boston (27 martie 2015) şi Washington (8 mai 2015)...
Cele 2 A321-200 (WL) sunt luate de la VEB-Leasing şi vor avea indicativele (TF-MOM şi TF-DAD). WOW Air a ales să configureze aeronavele într-o clasă cu 200 de locuri. Vor fi propulsate de două motoare CFM56, iar vârfurile aripilor vor fi echipate Sharklets.

Rutele vor fi operate după programele:
Reykjavik – Boston – din 27 martie 2015
WW125 KEF 15:35 – 17:50 BOS 32S x6
WW126 BOS 18:55 – 04:05+1 KEF 32S x6
Reykjavik – Washington – din 8 mai 2015
WW117 KEF 15:30 – 17:55 BWI 32S x26
WW118 BWI 19:25 – 05:10+1 KEF 32S x26

Care stire e cam veche ? Desi WOW opera pe Coasta de Est, acum au pus in vanzare biletele pentru LAX si SFO. De asemenea, se anunta zboruri spre Montreal si Toronto. Deci in actuala etapa, WOW va avea un total de sase destinatii in America de Nord...

scuze!! eu m-am incurcat in reply-uri si acum mi-am dat seama ca citisem cel cu "si-a pus planurile transatlantice in aplicare" impreuna cu al tau ca si cum a fost unul legat (desi e aproape 1 an intre ele)

scuze inca o data

Si asta e o miscare interesanta, mai ales ca zice intr-unul din articole ca vor sa ajunga la o flota de 10 A330. Ori asta ar inseamna ca se pregatesc sa opereze tot mai mult destinatii noi dincolo de range-ul narrow body (Coasta de Est si Europa de Vest)...

WOW Air: a base in Dublin for long-haul? - Luchtzak.be

The low-cost airline WOW Air will decide by the summer when its first base outside Iceland will be located, Dublin being among the three airports still in the running for long-haul operations.

Interviewed in the daily Irish Independent on 23 January 2017, the founder and CEO of the Icelandic airline Skúli Mogensen did not specify which other airports were among the “finalists”. Headquartered in Reykjavik-Keflavik, WOW Air plans to base two or three aircraft in its new base, going up to 17 within five years. Airbus A321 and A330 aircraft, and later A321LR as well, will be based there to launch long-haul flights – initially to the United States. But the CEO also evokes new connections to Asia, the Irish capital can then serve as a stopover for passengers from the rest of Europe. If everything goes well, this first out-of- Iceland base should be inaugurated at the beginning of next year.

The choice of Dublin is partly due to the on-site presence of US customs services and its proximity to Iceland, Mogensen said. But he also blames the airport of the city for its growing congestion (like Reykjavik), a point that will play in the final choice.
