WOW Airlines Cancels All Flights, Strands Passengers At Logan Airport

KEFLAVIK ICELAND- APRIL 28 2018 Wow Air Airbus A320 at Iceland's international airport. WOW Air started to offer connecting flight between North America and Europe with a stop in Iceland

"All WOW Air flights have been cancelled".

WOW saw deals fall through to sell to its main rival, the national flag-ship carrier Icelandair, and later to Indigo Partners, an American company operating the airline Wizz.

A travel alert published on Wow Air's website said that the airline is ceasing all operations and cancelling future flights as efforts to raise more money failed.

It is reaching out to them through text messages and push notifications through the app.

Passenger Barrai Omuireagain was waiting for a transatlantic flight on Wow from Dublin. The low-fare airline was founded in November 2011 and had its inaugural flight in May 2012. "In case of a bankruptcy, claims should be filed to the administrator / liquidator", the airline writes on its website in a notice to passengers.

Travellers were advised this morning by the airport to check with the airline before travelling.

"It's unclear if there are any options at this point", Adi said.

The travel editor of the Independent, Simon Calder, said in these situations other airlines would step in as they did not seek to make money out of "a bad situation".

Williams withdraws from Miami Open
Williams had been due to face 18th seed Wang Qiang of China, who defeated Johanna Konta in the second round yesterday. Osaka served for the match up 6-4, 5-4, 30-0 but Hsieh never stopped fighting.

The airline notes that fares are "subject to availability". But the advice offers little solace, telling passengers to check with other airlines to find a new ticket.

Icelandair, which services numerous same routes as Wow, will offer reduced return fares between March 28 and April 11: $60 to or from Europe, $100 to or from North America and $160 between Europe and North America via Iceland. Here, travelers wait in line at Iceland's worldwide airport Thursday.

WOW air was the creation of Icelandic businessman Skuli Mogensen.

She adds, "The most shocking aspect of this is that they were definitely selling those tickets right up until the end because we bought our tickets only days before the flight".

Europe's three biggest discount airlines - also fly to the island in the North Atlantic, whose popularity has grown exponentially in recent years thanks to television shows like Game of Thrones.

Riordan, an Irish woman who has lived in Columbia, Maryland for 20 years, was set to travel to Ireland for her nephew's christening.

Denise Riordan told WJZ her flight was grounded Wednesday night at BWI as passengers were boarding the plane.

Through Wow staff announcements at the airport and e-mails from the company, passengers were given different stories - the flight was cancelled, then delayed, then available another day, then cancelled.
