WOW air was founded in November 2011 and took its maiden flight to Paris on 31st May 2012. WOW air always tries to stand up to its name: we want to be WOW in all that we do. The company’s strategy
is to always provide fun and memorable service, as well as offering the lowest price airline tickets to and from Iceland, with a smile. We put great emphasis on punctuality and are proud to be able
to say we have been the most punctual at Keflavík International Airport in recent months.

The company’s Chair of the Board is Liv Bergþórsdóttir, who has been CEO of Nova since 2006. Liv was selected Marketer of the Year 2012.
At the end of October 2012 WOW air took over Iceland Express flight operations, leading to increased frequencies to London and Copenhagen, as well as offering flights to Berlin, Salzburg over ski season, and Warsaw and Kaunas over Christmas. In summer 2013 the company will offer an exciting timetable of flights to 14 destinations: London, Copenhagen, Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Milan, Zurich, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf, Berlin, Lyon, Alicante, Vilnius and Warsaw.
In October WOW air took delivery of a new Airbus A320 aeroplane, 2010 model. This is the first plane of four new Airbus A320s which WOW air will take into use from this spring. The planes will be the newest jets being used for scheduled flights to and from Iceland by an Icelandic airline and all on-board facilities are second to none. The new Airbus A320 planes are much more fuel efficient and they also pollute significantly less. Both support WOW air in its quest to consistently offer the lowest prices to and from Iceland, and to do what is right.
