Wow Air shuts down on lack of financing, stranding 2700 flyers

Wow Air shuts down on lack of financing, stranding 2700 flyers

Icelandic budget carrier Wow Air has ceased operations and canceled its flights, leaving passengers stranded around the world.

It wasn't until the following morning that she received an email from Wow Air informing passengers that the airline had ceased operations and all flights were canceled.

You can find more information here about discount rates for stranded passengers from participating airlines. The airline, which flew a total of 3.5 million passengers previous year, advised passengers to book new flights on other airlines, and said some may be eligible for compensation.

An airline that had offered flights from Pittsburgh to Iceland has shut down.

The airline flew a total of 3.5 million passengers in 2018.

Posting a video of a chaotic scene Toronto airport another added: '20 min to board, @wowairsupport cancels the flight.

Low-budget carrier WOW air seemed too good to be true with its "cheap flights" for worldwide destinations.

All told, The Independent estimates that around 5,000 passengers are stranded "on the wrong side of the Atlantic", with Europeans stuck in North America and North Americans stuck in Europe.

The low-priced airline went bankrupt after failing to secure a deal with other carriers to buy the company.

"My flight from Boston has been cancelled".

The airline operated out of Edinburgh Airport for summer service flights to Reykjavik. Part of it involves contacting airlines Icelandair and EasyJet.

Iceland-bound WOW aircraft flying out of Copenhagen, Denmark; Amsterdam; Paris; Dublin; Brussels; Berlin and Frankfurt, Germany, did not take off Thursday, CBS reported.

"Our entire trip was basically less than that including our accommodations", she says. Rival Norwegian Air Shuttle, which has also struggled to make profits, recently started offering "premium' budget travel to capture some of that market".

"I'm now planning on re-booking on a more reliable airline", Wow Air passenger Alex Spence told CNN.

"We weren't able to secure funding for the company", said Skuli Mogensen in a letter to WOW employees. 'WOW was clearly an incredible airline and we were on the path to do unbelievable things again'. On its website, the carrier explains that customers could receive compensation "in accordance with European regulation on Air Passenger Rights".

And in a sign of how travel problems often cascade into each other, she says they can't meet Icelandair's proof-of-travel requirement - because Wow isn't available to issue an e-ticket she could convert into a new ticket.
